Roughly $200 million worth of parking tickets were issued in Manhattan last year, nearly half of the $440 million dished out citywide.
An average of 25 tickets was written per parking spot in the Financial District, while the Upper East Side saw an average of 24 summonses per spot, according to a new report by SpotAngels cited by the New York Post. Meanwhile, Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village and Harlem had an average of three and five, respectively, issued per spot.
“I got a parking ticket the other day while I was in the car,” Upper East Side worker John Mario Garcias told the Post. “The police officers don’t give you a break.”
The parking spaces generate an average of $2,219 per spot for the city, according to the report. The average ticket price in Manhattan was $79.82, which is at least $9 more than the average in the other boroughs. [NYP] — Kathryn Brenzel
