Thursday: Schools Closed, Alternate Side Parking Rules Suspended, Partial Mass Transit Restored

For the fourth day in a row – and the third since the storm hit Monday night – all New York City public schools will be closed. They will remain closed on Friday as well.

Alternate side parking regulations will be suspended, but meters and all other parking regulations remain in effect. (Corrected)

The city is making scheduled garbage collections as storm conditions permit. Recycling collections are suspended. All recycling should be stored until further notice.

The MTA is partially restoring subway service, as are other area agencies. No subways will be crossing bridges or tunnels into Manhattan, and there will not be any service in Manhattan south of the 34th Street. However, the MTA will run shuttle buses to connect the lines.

The MTA’s subway service map post-Sandy – a depressing site – can be found here. Here’s WNYC’s handy tool to keep track of subway, bus and other transit options:

Correction (11/1/2012 @ 9:20 a.m.): The original version of this post indicated that parking meter regulations would not be enforced. That was incorrect. Beginning today, all parking meter regulations are being enforced.
