Hey everyone, I'm moving to NYC (from Indiana; culture shock I know) in two months and had a question. What is street parking like on the UES 70's to 90th? It's a government vehicle, with a parking placard. Will I have a difficult time finding a spot?

Thanks for the help.

Street parking on the UES is very difficult.
Unless your gov't sticker gives you some kind of special privilege that allows you to park at hydrants,bus stops and other tow away zones you will face the same nightmare as everyone else.

I have heard that some government cars can park in garages which are, at least in part, subsidized by the government. I would ask if that's the case or else you'll have a tough time.

You can sometimes get a metered spot on the avenues, after the meters expire, but you have to move by the specified time in the morning. The only problem with that can be damage to the vehicle, since vandalism and parking taps, bumper scrapes, etc. know no neighborhood boundaries.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

NYC traffic cops are ruthless! Like Bluedog said, unless you have some kind of special parking privilege you're in the same boat as the rest of us.
