Well, that’s it. It seems like it was just yesterday that we were gearing up for Memorial Day weekend and here we are, planning a final summer sendoff this Labor Day. Let’s make the most of it!
If you’re sticking around the neighborhood, here’s some information on what’s open, what’s closed, and what’s running on a different schedule.
Government Offices, Parking, and Sanitation (via nyc.gov)
Government offices and courts are closed on Monday, September 2nd in observance of Labor Day. There will be no mail delivery.
Alternate side parking is suspended and you do not have to pay the parking meter. No stopping, no standing and no parking regulations are suspended except where those regulations are in effect anytime or seven days a week.
There is no garbage or recycling pickup. If Monday is your garbage day, put out your garbage after 5:00 PM Monday evening. If Monday is your recycling day, wait until next week to put out your recycling.
