Hi. I could be moving to downtown Newark near Rutgers...Warren St. to be exact. But there are meters up and down the block I am moving to. How can I obtain a residential parking permit? Is it even possible? I looked all over the net for this info. Thanx in advanced for any responses.

I can't think of any on-street parking in that area that's not metered- it's primarily a business district. You're going to have a tough time finding parking (except for pay lots with monthly rates) if your housing complex doesn't have it's own parking.

I kinda figured that. It's a small residential block with small residential buildings...nowhere near an apt. complex. However, surrounding the block on Halsey, Washington, Broad, Market and the like are tons of stores, restaurants, banks etc. On the block itself is only metered parking. It simply would not be feasible to park on the block itself. I saw signs on surrounding blocks for PARKING PERMIT ONLY parking. So I'm assuming I can obtain one.

With that said, I would be willing to pay for a residential parking permit if such a thing is possible. I was wondering if the city of Newark offers such a thing and if so, how could I obtain one.

there's no need to worry about parking, more than likely the car will be stolen within 1 week of you moving there

Kort.. why do you compare Newark to Elizabeth.. they are totally different cities even though they are just next door to each other.. would you compare Englewood to Englewood Cliffs... ?? the moderators should ban people that do not add any good information..

stick to the the topic.. parking permits.. and if you feel that the area is a dangerous place to park.. it does not hurt to mention it but without sarcasm or simply without been an @55hole..

now to respond to the topic, I doubt Newark has parking permits anywhere.. but in fact the area may be somewhat dangerouse for parking.. Newark has a high car theft record.. good luck!

I'm not the one who coupled the 2 cities regarding car thefts, there is an essex union task force set up by the two counties to try and deter car thefts in the 2 city area.
Please try and know what you are babbling about.
Here's a good saying that you should take to heart:
engage brain before typing
