A Mom’s Guide To Parking In NYC! @ParkWhiz #Giveaway #Partner



    Have you ever been to New York City?  Chances are, if you have, you know that it is nearly next to impossible to find parking downtown.  We live in one of the outer boroughs of NYC so we don’t have to deal with the hassle of getting parking in the city.  However, there are many exciting things to experience in Manhattan so the kids like to head over there as often as possible to enjoy all the sights and events.


    Most New Yorkers will tell you that taking public transportation is the most convenient and affordable way to get around the city.  They are right.  Unfortunately, moms sometimes have special reasons for needing to drive places.  In our family, my younger son and I have health issues that make traveling through the Subway difficult for us.  Likewise, there are many moms with babies and strollers that find it extremely hard to get around on the buses and trains.

    Thankfully, I have found the solution to all of our parking problems in NYC!  A great application for moms “on-the-go,” ParkWhiz allows you to book parking near where you’re going, for less. If the idea of driving around with the kids in the car searching for a spot has ever stopped you from going downtown, this app is the solution to your problems. Find parking close to your destination, compare prices, and be on your way.

    The concept is so easy.  ParkWhiz gives drivers the ability to pre-book affordable parking in the city.  It’s great for moms, because it makes finding parking near where you need to go a snap.  Believe me, that makes a big difference when you don’t have to leave three hours early to attend an event just because you know that it won’t be easy to find parking and that walking through city streets with kids in tow is no easy feat.

  1. Wow, sending this to my NYC friends now… can’t believe an app like this exists. What a time saver and so much less hassle than circling forever trying to find an available parking spot.

  2. I just used ParkWhiz to book parking for our trip to Gen Con! Was super easy and saved me 30%!

  3. I can’t think of a better word for that than brilliant. What a way to take out the hassles!

  4. Brittney House says

    My kids are very impatient in the car so I like to make the trips as quick as possible. Finding parking faster will help out with that.

  5. This is such a great concept. Parking can be a hassle (and super expensive) in any big city.

  6. I cannot even imagine trying to drive around NYC as a mom. ParkWhiz sounds great and very helpful!

  7. Seyma Shabbir says

    The biggest problem is the kids distracting me while driving.

  8. Seyma Shabbir says

    Entered Tollhouse no bake paypal givaway!

  9. What a unique way to find parking – I know it can suck. As long as it isn’t parallel parking, I’m golden with this!

  10. Austin Baroudi says

    The constant yelling and distracting is the worst thing about driving around with kids and being able to book parking makes things easier no matter what! Thanks for the chance!

  11. This is a great help. There are times that me and my mom have a hard time looking for parking when we are going somewhere that is time sensitive. A guide would be helpful

  12. eliz frank says

    My kids are older now so many of the old issues no longer suffice. I do still love driving into the city and finding tools to help one park is critical. I’m glad to see another one to add to my list. Happy driving!

  13. I am taking my 3 kids to NYC soon to spend a day sightseeing, ParkWhiz will be so helpful because I won’t have to waste time driving around looking for a parking garage.

  14. Well I’d say the longer you’re driving, the more they are going to get fussy. Plus you don’t want to park far away and have to walk super far /w them in the heat.

  15. My kids are very impatient in the car, especially with trips that are over 20 mins. This would get us parking easier and out of the car quicker!

  16. The parking is just so expensive, and it’s hard to know where the best and closest location is to where we are going. My kids are still pretty small, so I don’t like to park any farther away than we need to or they start complaining about how tired they are. This sounds like it would make the whole process go more smoothly.

  17. ParkWhiz would make my life easier by letting me see how much parking is available in an area before I go there.

  18. I still have one client down in NYC and yes, I do drive down there and head for the nearest parking garage! I used to take the train then the subways but for the past 5 years or so I find that I can not breathe down in those tunnels–I do occasionally drive down for pleasure and I am very happy you told us about ParkWhiz–driving around and around and around those blocks looking for a parking space—–not the most pleasant of occupations!
