Streets, avenues, boulevards, and drives—in many cities, there is no difference between the various terms that follow the name of a thoroughfare. In New York City, however, there is.
NYC streets run east to west, while avenues run north to south. There are far fewer avenues than there are streets, and the blocks between avenues are considerably larger than the blocks between streets. As far as addresses are concerned, any street address preceded by “West” is west of 5th Ave., while any address that starts with “East” is east of this posh NYC avenue.
More confusing than figuring out New York City’s road network is figuring out how to park on its busy city streets. If you would like to have the comfort of knowing that a parking spot is always waiting for you near your Manhattan home or office, consider renting a monthly parking space from Champion Parking.

You may be surprised to learn that a significant amount of automobile accidents take place in parking garages and parking lots. While the vast majority of these accidents are fender benders, it is still important to take safety precautions when parking your car. Continue reading to learn about parking garage safety.
This tip is important to keep in mind both before and after parking your car. Narrow passageways and one-way directional arrows make it crucial for drivers to be fully aware of their surroundings when entering, driving in, and exiting parking garages. The same vigilance should be practiced when walking from your car to the parking garage exit and vice versa.
Hide or Remove Valuables
If you plan to leave a laptop, a guitar, or expensive jewelry in your parked car, make sure these items are locked up or hidden from sight. Do not forget to safely store your GPS device before you leave your car.
Carry Your Cell Phone
Preventing a thief from stealing your new smartphone is only one reason why you should not leave your cell phone in a parked car. Keeping your phone on-hand allows you to contact emergency services or a family member if you encounter any problems while out and about in the city.
