"This website searches out nearly 20,000 listed street parking spots to tell you which are open, or which have meters that are about to run out. When you are ready to park, you can look up what's available on your phone and head to that spot, drastically cutting down the amount of frustration and wasted gas we experience prowling the streets for an open spot."Our thanks go out to the people over at treehugger.com.

We added the ability to link to an exact point on the map, and embed PrimoSpot maps into your own site.
Use the link button on the right hand site of the map page:
The embeded maps look like this: (move it with your mouse)

You can easily add maps to your site by pasting the embed code into your site or blog. Here is some example HTML that you would need to use:
<iframe width="500" height="400" src="http://primospot.com/spots/embed?width=500&height=400&lat=40.727324&lng=-73.979294&q=Union+Square,NYC" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0"></iframe><br /><small><a href="http://primospot.com/spots?lat=40.727324&lng=-73.979294&q=Union+Square,NYC" style="color:#0000FF;text-align:left">View Larger Map</a></small>
The important parts are the width, height (notice these are in the iframe definition and the link parameters) and the lat and lng parameters. The q parameter in the link is what will show in the search box. The lat and lng paramaters can be omitted if a valid address is used in the q paramater.
Be sure to let us know using the contact us form if you own a site and embed our parking maps.

Sarah is now one of our favorite people on the web! We just found out about this, or we would have posted earlier:
Thank You Sarah.
P.S. Tell your little brother we said hi.

We now have collected the information for the area around Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn.
There are some places where you can stay for one week, just south of Prospect Park.
