One ShotsSigns GOT A QUARTER? by Kevin Walsh March 17, 2012 March 17, 2012 You could park in his lot at Rockwell Place and Fulton Street for that amount once.

There’s more on that wall, including an old ad for a bowling alley featuring the ten pins flying off in a circular pattern after being hit by a ball. I wonder where that bowling alley used to be? – maybe that building itself, which is now a BAM performance space? I had sent in a small photo of that ad as well as the parking lot ad some time ago, but I guess they got lost somewhere. Reply ron s March 18, 2012 - 10:29 am You can still park for a quarter most places–for 15 minutes or 7 1/2 minutes………… RS Reply Tal Barzilai March 19, 2012 - 8:20 pm These days that means nothing. Back when I was young, a quarter on a parking meter gave either half an hour to an hour depending on what parking meter it was. Also, at the time, you could use nickels and dimes, though I never understood why not pennies as if so many machines don’t take them. Unfortunately, most of NYC’s metered parking is now all muni-meters, and many of them tend to cost more if they are being used for commercial parking during the day, and they don’t take credit or debit cards, which are needed mostly for the ones that are regular metered parking for today.
