Alternate side parking has been suspended on Oct. 8 and 9 in observance of Columbus Day and Simchat Torah, respectively, according to the city's Department of Transportation.
Drivers will not need to move their vehicles, but parking meters will still be in effect.
Columbus Day celebrates the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World. Monday is also Shemini Atzereth, which follows immediately after Sukkot and celebrates the 22nd day of the Hebrew month of Tishrei.
Simchat Torah celebrates the conclusion of the annual cycle of public Torah readings as well as the beginning of a new cycle.
