Parking Options

NOTE: Please read actual city signage when you park; some or all of the guidelines may not be applicable when you try parking; this may result in a ticket or fine. Here is a detailed street map. To the best of our knowledge, this information is current as of August 28, 2007.

 

NOTE: Most streets in Chinatown are one-way roads; always check signage carefully.

 

On-street parking options are severely limited in Chinatown. Here are some rules of thumb:

  • Most parking spots on Harrison, Tyler, Hudson and Beach Streets are zoned for commercial vehicles and become available to non-commercial vehicles after either 4:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m.
  • Essex and Kneeland Streets' metered parking (both one block from e5) metered parking becomes available after 6:00 p.m. evenings (the meters function through 8:00 p.m. with every 15 minutes hour costing a quarter).
  • Most downtown streets (within 5 blocks north of e5) allow parking for free on Sundays or in the late evenings.
  • Most Chinatown parking slots south of Kneeland are metered during the day and for residents only during the evenings.
  • It is difficult and very time consuming to park on street in Chinatown on Friday evenings, all-day Saturdays, and Sundays through mid-afternoon.

 

Commercial Parking options are available and somewhat costly:

  • Stanhope Garage (33 Essex Street, enter off both Essex and Harrison) charges either $10 or $15 for parking after 6:00 p.m. and on weekends
  • There is also parking on Beach Street (turn right off Harrison).
  • Four blocks away, one can park under Boston Common (enter off Charles Street) for $10/day on Saturdays and Sundays. Their contact information is: 0 Charles St Boston, MA 02116, (617) 954-2098. Follow directions from the Green Line (Boylston Stop) to encuentro5.
  • Depending on the number of people coming, a cheaper alternative is to park at the MBTA-operated Lechemere T-stop parking and take the subway to Boylston. It costs $3.50 per day to park.
  • Orange Line T-stops from North Station through Oak Grove have parking lots attached; so too does the Forest Hills stop.
