Presidents Day: Subway Service, Garbage And Parking Changes


On Monday, February 18, we celebrate the birthdays of – depending on your interpretation – George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson, all, would you know it, former presidents of these United States. I guess that’s why it’s called Presidents Day. And I guess these folks must have hated moving their cars early in the morning, riding express subways, and taking out the trash, because to┬ácommemorate┬áthem we’ve made sure none of these things happen on their observed birthdays.

On Monday, February 18, there are the following changes to city services:

  • Alternate side parking regulations will be suspended. All other Department of Transportation regulations, including parking meters, remain in effect (because presidents love meters).
  • There will be no garbage or recycling collection.
  • All buses and subways will operate on a Saturday schedule, meaning no B train for the holiday.
