I was thinking of parking near the Van Cortlandt Park station and then taking the subway from there. That part is straight forward enough, but I was just wondering if anyone knew about parking near there.
Doing some basic research it seems that there is free street parking and also a parking garage near there.
Will that work to leave the car for a couple days?
Otherwise I don't really know where to leave the car. Thanks.
If you're going to park and leave your car for a few days while you're IN Manhattan, you may as well park in Manhattan. The UWS has tons of street parking from say..... 79th to 96th street is a good place to look. May take you 20 or 30 minutes to find a spot, but it's free and you can leave it for as much as 3 or 4 days (Tuesday to Friday or Monday to Thursday as well as over the weekend).
