Parking

For most events, you may purchase a pre-paid parking voucher through Ticketmaster or at the Box Office. These vouchers can be redeemed at participating area garages. Please see your parking voucher for details and garage locations.

Individuals with disabilities, who possess a New York City Special Parking Permit, have the option to park on streets and avenue around the venue. Please pay careful attention to the rules and regulations on the back of your permit, which informs you where you may and may not park on New York City streets.  Please note that New York City does not honor the blue New York State, New Jersey, Connecticut or any other out of state issued parking hangtag for the disabled or license plate for on-street parking.  The Department of Transportation may ticket and/or tow vehicles that do not display the New York City Department of Transportation issued parking permit.

For those individuals with raised-roof vans, some of the indoor parking lots are unable to accommodate these vehicles due to low clearance. As a general rule, most outdoor parking lots accept raised-roof vans, however, we encourage you to contact the parking facility directly to confirm their policies.
