No, I haven't asked the body shop manager not to park their cars in front of my home.
Is it fair to ask the same, since streets are meant for public parking, unless there are restrictions?

He doesn't have to listen to you but if you explain nicely that you need those spots for yourself, he can find another house that won't be bugging him about it.

This may never be resolved in a way that makes anyone happy. The garage owner needs to park the cars somewhere if there's no space on his lot. If he removes cars from the OP's front, he'll have to park the cars in front of neighbors' homes.

Buying a house close to a car repair is a location problem similar to living by a school or next to the interstate. I hope the property was purchased at a discount.

A solution could be to petition the town to forbid overnight street parking. Unfortunately, this would probably put the owner out of business.

I've been going through Town of Hempstead code and have not found anything which would help in your issue.

You can try calling the Town and ask what their rule is concerning a commercial repair shop parking their client's vehicles up and down your street. Once you know where you stand, you can try diplomatically asking the repair shop owner to park elsewhere.

Anyone can park in the streets, assuming it's legal parking... I don't see much of a case here.


Don't live near a car repair shop, I guess? That's all I've got

Comments and suggestions are invited and will be appreciated on whether such parking is appropriate from the body shop management.
Thank you.
This would likely be in the zoning regulations, no? Commercial/Residential/Mixed Use....Those vehicles should be considered the property of the business and thus, commercial vehicles while they are checked in for repair.

I donít see how a private business can be taking advantage of a common good (the residentís parking) for its own gain. How can you run an auto repair business but not provide your own space to store the autos?
