3 College Sophomore

Parking: I wish parking is free but others consumers need to make money. Who are we to judge them, at least they reserve spot for students to park their cars, and in Manhattan I rather recommend taking the subway or bus. It saves alot of time and it is more efficient for students to make it class a lot faster.

3 College Junior

Parking: It's hard to find spots.

Parking: The parking is not good because it is very difficult to find them

2 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking in Manhattan is bad everywhere

2 College Freshman

Parking: City College of New York offers no parking for its campus. Since it's located in the city, you can use meter parking or park near the school if you find an open spot. But since you're in the city, finding parking is quite difficult.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students can purchase a permit that provides space in a parking garage at the school, however these can cost over 100 dollars per month. The alternative is to park in the street, which is a risky proposition because cars may be damaged or ticketed, especially if the money in the meter runs out. Thus, public transportation is usually more favorable than driving. If you do drive, trying to find parking can be a hassle. It can take up to thirty minutes to find a parking spot near the school.
