The cost of a metered parking spot is going up throughout New York City—with Queens to be hit with the increase starting Nov. 1
The new rates will see the cost of metered parking spaces in the commercial districts of Astoria, Long Island City, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights and Forest Hills go up from $1 per hour to $1.50. In downtown Flushing the cost will be hiked from $1 to $2 per hour.
Outside traditional commercial districts in Queens, the cost will go up from $1.00 per hour to $1.25.
The DOT in announcing the roll out, which starts in Brooklyn Sept. 4, said that this will be the first time since 2013 that rates are going up.
