Garage Parking in NYC?

I know it's a longshot...but looking for a secure, indoor space in NYC, specifically Brooklyn, LIC, Ridgewood, or Astoria. No surprise, $$ is also a factor. If anyone knows of anything, please let me know.

Thanks!

Andrew

Mind if I piggy back a question? Any garages where I can turn some wrenches...err solder some wires indoors in Queens? The GFs garage is not defender friendly. Maybe I need to get a set of 225/35ZR 16s.

Let the air out of your tires.

I park in the trump buildings on 64th and west end ave for about $325 pm. Parking is cheaper in LIC and the street is free. Ask INI88 who has about half the spaces in LIC taken up with his various vehicles. As for wrenching that's the million dollar question ... There is some open air space in LIC but not recommended at this time of year.

Occasionally we consider a bunch of us getting together to rent a space to wrench but given the limited availability we give up.

There are some friendly members that loan their driveway from time to time ... But generally people tend to have a place outside the city ( friends / family ) where they wrench.

I'd be into that if I move up there. I have a welder, compressor, and a Snap On tool box full of tools (not Snap On) at home that I don't use for work and will have to store somewhere if I move.

Wrench on the street, thats what I do. Never been hassled by a cop yet. I've done it all on the street except replace an engine. Did brakes jobs, axles, driveshafts, transfercase, 3 differentials, etc, etc

Bring it to LIC and we can fix it.

Andrew, Astoria has some spots for $150 a month. LIC has a couple of parking spots too for that price.

I'd love to see photos of a t-case swap on the side of a street in NYC. That would be awesome.

I'm in the same boat, we're moving back to the city the end of March. (Yes, back to the city. Long story...) I just started looking for a garage for my truck, tools and other crap.

If I put license plates on my tool box can I park it on the street?

That might be true in NJ but in NYC there is a greater respect for a man's tools.

When I was living in Little Rock a few years back I didn't have a garage but I did have a 7'x10' v nose trailer. It had my tool, jack, extension cords everything, and my bikes. It was awesome. So I thought that was going to be my plan for NYC... Except it turns out that NYC is not trailer friendly. You are not allowed to park a disconnected trailer on the street. Looks like I'm selling the trailer before the move.

I have a garage with power and lights etc. but it's just too narrow to do any real work in effectively.

Without plates it wouldn't be ticketed ...possibly towed but I doubt it. Take a look at all the vespas.

If you are working in midtown or downtown (which covers about 99% of the people employed in Manhattan), LIC is ideal.

How about we each leave our tool boxes on the street and we see who's last longer?
