OptionalThe New York Breeze25"Alternate-side Parking Rules"https://open.spotify.com/episode/0G34HttFV07aG25g6mGOcJ?si=axlSN7PwQJW-HUqg-ASSgg
A bilingual podcast in English and Japanese about life in New York City. This show is designed for Japanese learners of English (ESL) who either live in New York or have an affinity for the lifestyle, culture and news emanating from our great city and all the five boroughs. Today’s topic is something that might really puzzle our listeners in Japan. We’re going to talk about street parking, alternate side parking rules, and congestion pricing. Especially congestion pricing is a hot-button topic right now in NYC. Ask any New Yorker who drives about street parking and alternate-side parking, and you’re bound to get a passionate response.
