From the mailbag:

Dear Transit Sam,
What is the regulation with regards to parking in front of a school anywhere in NYC during the summer? Most schools prohibit parking between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Does this restriction apply to July and August when students are on vacation?
Michael, East Village

Dear Michael,
You may park in front of a school during summer months if there are no classes going on inside the school, like summer school or any other type of school program, and if there are no students around. Check the city Department of Education’s website, http://schools.nyc.gov to see what schools are open for summer school.
