ITHACA, N.Y. –– Hourly parking in downtown parking garages will be free of charge in the week leading up to Christmas to allow last-minute holiday shoppers to get downtown and get their gifts.

From Monday, Dec. 21 through Friday, Dec. 25 hourly parking in the Dryden Road, Green Street and Seneca Street garages will be free.

Street parking restrictions still apply, so don’t forget to park inside a garage when getting those last-minute gifts.
