Authorities in the waterfront town devised the plan for easy parking along Main Street and Broadway after meeting with business owners.

Nyack's parking meters remain in effect from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. Parking is free on Sundays from 6 a.m. until midnight. On-street parking is 25 cents for 15 minutes; parking lots are 25 cents for 20 minutes.)
