Brooklyn parking meters take a rest on Sundays

Brooklyn residents can keep their change on Sunday, thanks to the City Council?s vote to end metered parking on the universal day of rest.

There are 32,000 meters in New York city and its surrounding areas. The City Council voted 41 to 3 to end feeding the quarter machines.

However, Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R-NY) opposes the vote and says without the requirement to feed the meters, business owners will suffer. Bloomberg says residents parking on Saturday nights will take parking away from Sunday shoppers. The city and its boroughs stand to lose $7 million a year without Sunday parking.
