Because there is very limited parking on the Island, visitors are encouraged to walk, bicycle and/or take public transportation. Free parking is available only in designated parking lots. Tickets will be issued for parking outside designated parking lots.
There will be plenty of Event Day parking in designated parking lots. There will be signage on-island to direct you to the free parking areas. Due to construction in the area, it is important that you adhere to parking guidelines. The main parking lot that will be available for participants is located directly next to Icahn Stadium. Participants can also walk, bicycle or Uber to the site.
Additional convenient off-island parking for a fee is also available on the Manhattan side of the 103rd Street Footbridge, at MPG Garage 440 E 102nd Street.
