NEW YORK - The city's alternate side parking rules have returned, only temporarily though.

The rules are in effect through Sunday, May 24.

Rules will be suspended on Thursday for the Christian observance of the Solemnity of the Ascension.


After Sunday, the rules will be suspended again for two weeks from May 25th through June 7th.

During that time, the Sanitation Department will reassess and decide if and when to schedule the next street cleaning. 

The rules have been suspended since mid-March so drivers do not have to leave their homes to move their cars.
