Jersey City Parking Zone Map

Parking in Jersey City is increasingly in short supply. Monday through Friday, to thwart out of city commuters from using Jersey City streets as a park and ride, most streets fall under resident permit zones. Resident permits are available from the Jersey City Parking Authority to residents with proper identification.

Most of the zones limit vehicles without permits to 2 hours, after which vehicles without resident permits, or the wrong permit for the particular street are subject to tickets, towing and the dreaded boot. Parking permits have nothing to do with street cleaning or emergency snow routes and vehicles with permits may still be ticketed or towed for these offenses. Read all signs carefully.

Disclaimer: This map is intended as an informal guide, not an absolute street index. Drivers should read all signs before parking. We are not responsible for any parking ticket you receive. Streets without a zone label on this map generally prohibit parking. There maybe a few "sweet spots" around the city that have neither zone requirements nor parking restrictions. But if we knew about them, we certainly wouldn't tell you.

Metropolis Towers Future Configuration

There has been much speculation over what is being built, what has been proposed, and what is just rumor over at the Metropolis Towers ever since demolition of the low-rise retail strip connecting the two existing towers began a few weeks back.

Emporis, the internet treasure trove of skyscraper information, lists three phases of construction. Referencing architectural renderings from DMR Architects, we created a map of the future expansion. The maps are speculative. By no means is it certain that this is the final site plan, if and when any part of this complex is built. Directly below is a map of the current configuration. Below that a map of the future expansion.

Newport Residences Proposed and Under Construction

While the proposed Aqua and Ellipse may not break ground for a few months or even years, that shouldn't keep you from knowing where these new towers are going. And just in case you don't get out to Newport much, we've included the Shore Club, currently under construction, as well as the existing towers.
