The best: the freedom of driving in New York City. The worst: trying to find affordable parking anywhere close to, say, that meeting in Midtown or dinner on the Lower East Side.
Now it’s easy with ParkWhiz, the app that helps you book the closest and cheapest garage or lot.
It works like this: You enter your destination (an exact address or whole neighborhood), then ParkWhiz gives you choices for places to park. You click the one you want, and the app not only books it for you but also tells you how far it is to walk to your destination. Your credit card will be charged, and you’ll be given a digital pass to show the parking attendant.
Convenience aside, the app can also save you money. Booking through ParkWhiz can cut rates up to 50 percent (Manhattan parking starts at just $7).
Talk about a game changer.
