Nyackers and village visitors will be able to park in municipal lots for free part of this week and next, said mayor Jen Laird-White.
Daytime parking downtown will be gratis from Saturday to Tuesday. The free hours run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and apply to the Riverspace and Artopee lots.
"Nyack is going to support its local merchants," Laird-White said, noting the upcoming several days will be tough on merchants. Saturday marks the annual Fire Department Parade, Sunday will house a streetfair and Main Street will be closed Monday and Tuesday for Streetscape paving.
"We don’t want to make it more difficult for merchants," Laird-White added.
