It’s never easy to find street parking in NYC, especially  in Manhattan, and parking in NYC garages is expensive, especially in midtown, especially on Wednesday matinee day.  Cut the cost of NYC parking for Broadway theater performances and other midtown events with discount parking coupons. 

  • Icon Parking has several locations  in the area they call Midtown West, which charge just $12 after 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday.
  • QuikPark rates are between $15 and $20 for six hours, depending on location, with the coupon you can download from the website — or just tell the attendant  coupon code QP Web Coupon.
  • Central Parking makes it a bit more complicated.  You have to download the coupon for the exact location where you intend to park.  That makes it tough, since you don’t know before you leave for the theater which of Central’s garages will be full by the time you arrive.  Since Central’s rates are similar to Icon Parking and QuickPark, you will save time and money using their coupons and parking locations.
