Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer was joined by DOT Queens Commissioner Maura McCarthy and residents of Sunnyside and Woodside to announce the creation of additional parking spaces.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) recently moved parallel to the parking demands of Sunnyside residents.

DOT Queens Commissioner Maura McCarthy joined Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer on March 23 to announce the creation of additional unregulated parking spaces in Sunnyside. Roughly 360 feet of parking – amounting to between 18 and 20 spaces – will be added to the north side of Barnett Avenue in an attempt to relieve traffic congestion in the community.

“Parking in the City of New York can be hard to come by, and for that reason I have continued to work with the DOT to find additional parking for residents,” said Van Bramer, who sent a letter to DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan in July of 2011 requesting the additional spaces. “I thank the DOT for responding to my request for more parking for Sunnyside residents and I will continue to fight for more parking.”

This is not the first parking alteration championed by Van Bramer, who also reduced 12-hour parking on Queens and Vernon Boulevards and pushed to end the morning ban on parking along Queens Boulevard.

“We are always willing to work with Councilmember Van Bramer and his colleagues across the borough to address community parking needs by modifying our parking inventory when feasible as we did here on Barnett Avenue,” McCarthy said.
