Default Hicksville Train Station--Parking

I was wondering if there is any close free parking for the Hicksville train station. I don't live in Oyster Bay so I can't get the parking permit. I will be going into the city once a week from January to May so free parking would be preferable.

Thanks for your help

I just park in the Broadway Mall parking lot...it's about a 7 minute walk. Whatever you do, don't park in the private lot just southeast of the station without paying. The "attendant" is only there for a limited time in the morning and if you park without paying, your car will be towed and it'll cost you $140 to get it back. I learned the hard way...nasty people. And, no, I wasn't trying to avoid paying...I don't go into the city that often and I actually thought it was a free lot.

On the weekends, you don't need a permit.

Look for spaces around the storage building, that's a across from the station, as you are looking at Broadway Mall.

And then, there is always Broadway Mall to park in !

OR go here ....

Free parking in Hicksville doesn't exist, at least not by the train station. If you are not a resident of Oyster Bay, you can pay to park in one of the lots southeast of the station ($9 a day for one and $7 a day for the other which is just a bit further south). Or, you could drive to Mineola and park in the garage for $5 a day, and be Zone 4 instead of Zone 7.

Agreed-you're really not supposed to park in the mall lot..can get towed there, too...

I had a sticker on my car yesterday from the towing company at Broadway mall. Do they really tow from that lot?

The times that I've had to go into the city I've used the closest mall lot and was never towed but this was over 5 years ago. There were a row of cars just like me. I did hear that it wasn't really allowed and I wouldn't risk it anymore. You can try the Ikea area or Sears lot which is across the street and an extra 5 minutes walk. Doubtful anyone really checks cars there.
