Moving to Brooklyn, and need truck parking guidance
Thank god for this website. I've been poring over old posts, but haven't come across one that deals specifically with my own conundrum. I wondered if any of you seasoned hands has any light to shed on moving to Brooklyn.
I'm moving to Sackett Street in Carroll Gardens, a one-way street. There's a single lane for vehicular traffic, a bike line, and cars seemed to be parked bumper to bumper along either side of the street. The moving company has asked me to look into whether a permit is required to park a moving truck. So far, my research -- through the city's helpline, and the department of transportation -- suggests I don't. Still, I'm wondering where the hell a moving truck will fit on this street given its extremely tight clearance. Have any of you had experience moving to one of Brooklyn's narrower streets? If a moving truck is double parked on a one-way street for a couple of hours, would that be inviting massive fines/the wrath of belligerent New Yorkers? Are there any helpful hotlines/departments I could contact that could help me clear some of these questions up? Any thoughts, ideas or advice would be most appreciated! I move in just three days and fear I've overlooked a pretty major loose end here.
Thanks to anyone who can help!
