This research aims to evaluate the different parking conditions that drivers face in critical areas of New York City, to examine the variables that impact their curbside behavior, and to develop recommendations to improve curb management. To accomplish this task, this study includes three major components: (1) an international review of literature and best practices; (2) a case study investigating existing parking availability and parking violation behavior in varying land use areas of Manhattan, New York City using available datasets from the NYC Department of City Planning, NYC Department of Finance and the NYC Department of Transportation; and (3) a case study employing a survival analysis modeling approach to investigate the relationship of parking duration with operator and regulatory factors using field data collected from a related study.
