Side note: I looked to see where this thread already exists but did not find one.

The low down: Please inform me where visitors can park in NYC or anywhere reasonably in the outskirts and get back into Manhattan easily.

I keep hearing there are parking garages for as little as $15.00/day. I CAN'T IMAGINE this because everywhere I look online they're 10x that much.

We've heard horror stories of cars being stripped with (far) out-of-town tags, of parking garages banging up/scratching cars, etc., and of people returning to parking garages for their car and the attendants needing three-four hours' notice to retrieve car. WTH?

Anyone w/ any experience and knowledge, please inform. We beg you.

A tad more info: Just needing to park close or inside of Manhattan area for a day or two at a time for the next few months. Need to leave car to do work around city. Would like to be able to also park it overnight.

You could park in Queens and take the subway back into Manhattan.

Parking at Secaucus Junction is $10 weekdays and $5 nights and weekends and it's a 10-minute train ride on NJ Transit to New York Penn Station. Your car will be safer than in any part of Queens that's that close to Mahattan.

Hi, there are some cheap parking garage options, but you need to look for their coupons. Not all garages offer them. You need to look. A good place to search for NYC parking garage coupons is parking.nyccoupons.com. For example, in Battery Park, parking for 3+ hours can cost you north of $37. But with a parking coupon, you can park at the same parking garage for $16 for up to 12 hrs on weekends; click here for this coupon. Another good parking coupon is for midtown west, where you can park for the day, any day, for $16 as opposed to $36 or more. I hope this helps.

Lol, $150 a day? I've never seen that.

Why would you even want a car in Manhattan, let alone park it?

Try this site, shows the price, often discounted with their coupon for each area of the city. I park in Midtown on the westside and Chelsea for $18. And I even parked on a Saturday in the summer in the East Village near NYU for $6. You can also see the streets where you can park on the street, not easy but on more than one occasion I've gone in early on the weekend intending to park in a lot or garage and had a spot open up right on the street.
