Alternate side parking has been suspended for Aug. 15 in observance of the Feast of the Assumption, according to the city's Department of Transportation.
There will be no street cleaning, so it will not be necessary for car owners in the five boroughs to move their vehicles. Parking meters will remain in effect on the holiday.
The holiday, which is also known as the Assumption of Mary, celebrates the Virgin Mary's ascent to heaven at the end of her life.
