Disabled meter on Amsterdam Avenue.One of the last standing parking meters on Amsterdam Ave.

The ubiquitous New York City parking meter is no more. Sixty years to the month of the launch of the first meter in Harlem the last working parking meter in Manhattan — a few blocks south of the first installation in Harlem — was disabled. The old-style parking meters are still standing in the outer boroughs…for the time being. Will muni-meters enjoy the same storied history?
