On Monday, February 18, we celebrate the birthdays of – depending on your interpretation – George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson, all, would you know it, former presidents of these United States. I guess that’s why it’s called Presidents Day. And I guess these folks must have hated moving their cars early in the morning, riding express subways, and taking out the trash, because to commemorate them we’ve made sure none of these things happen on their observed birthdays.
On Monday, February 18, there are the following changes to city services:
- Alternate side parking regulations will be suspended. All other Department of Transportation regulations, including parking meters, remain in effect (because presidents love meters).
- There will be no garbage or recycling collection.
- All buses and subways will operate on a Saturday schedule, meaning no B train for the holiday.
