Hi,
I am moving to an apartment in 1600 Walnut street building and will commute to work by bus. I want to keep my car for weekends trips and grocery shopping. I heard about the Residential Parking Permit and I though it is would be a cheap option for me to keep my car. I don't mind walking 4-5 block once in a while.
Can somebody tell me what blocks would be available for me to park with the permits? Can I just leave my car there for weeks? I would not run into trouble by parking in front of other people's residence?
Thanks in advance.

Usually once you start hitting the blocks South of Locust (Spruce, Lombard, Bainbridge, etc.) you'll be able to leave your car there for weeks without any issues with a parking permit. Just be sure to read signs carefully when you park.

Even with a parking permit decal stuck on the back windshield of your car, you will find parking very difficult during certain days of the week in Center City. You will have better luck finding a place south of Fitzwater Street and west of 23rd Street. You are warned.

Clark is right. Good luck finding street parking in or around CC. Even if you head northwest of 1600 Walnut you will find spots with "2 hr limit". One option is get rid of the car and use a rental agency like Zip which is fairly reasonable. Much cheaper then paying for insurance if your only occasionally going to use a car on weekends.
