NEW ROCHELLE, NY — The City of New Rochelle will reactivate valet parking services in the downtown, beginning Memorial Day weekend. This white-glove valet service allows downtown restaurant patrons to drop off their cars at the Library South parking lot and pay a flat $5 fee to park until midnight, eliminating the need to circle for a space or worry about expired meters. The City of New Rochelle is working jointly with the New Rochelle Downtown Business Improvement District to provide this service.
With the New Rochelle BID ‘Dine Downtown’ Restaurant District growing in popularity, Ralph DiBart, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Improvement District noted, “We welcome the City’s Attended Parking program, which will increase public access to convenient and safe parking near many of our most popular restaurants during the busy summer weekends. Diners will now be assured not only great food, but an easy trip to downtown.”
“In New Rochelle we want to be sure that we not only provide great dining options, but a first class dining experience, with white-glove parking services as part of that experience,” said Development Commissioner Luiz Aragon. “This is just another component of our multi-faceted approach to building the economy in our downtown, and one more way of showing that ‘Ideal Dining’ is part of what our City has to offer.”
Valet parking services will be overseen by LAZ parking, and will be available in the Library South Parking lot between Lawton Avenue and Memorial Highway, from 4 pm to 12 am, Friday and Saturday, from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend (May 27 – September 3). The cost will be $5, from arrival until midnight.
