Alternate side parking has been suspended from Oct. 14 to 17 for Columbus Day and Idul Adha.
There will be no street cleaning, so it will not be necessary for car owners in the five boroughs to move their vehicles on Monday through Thursday. Parking meters will remain in effect on all four days.
Columbus Day, which is on Oct. 14, celebrates explorer Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas.
Idul Adha, which is from Oct. 15 to 17, is an important religious holiday for Muslims that honors the prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son, Ismail, as an act of submission to God's command.
