The City of Boston declared a snow emergency and parking ban effective at 9:00 pm on Saturday, December 29, 2012. An estimated 6-8″ of accumulation is expected in Boston, according to the National Weather Service.
The NWS has also issued a Strong Wind Advisory for Sunday, 12/29/12 with gusts up to 50 MPH.
Parking is prohibited from snow emergency streets. On streets other than major arteries, parking within 20 feet of an intersection or further than one foot from the curb is prohibited, as this impedes access for both emergency vehicles and snow plows.
In the North End, snow emergency streets are Hanover St., Cross St., Commercial St. and N.Washington St. Alternate parking lots are open for those with resident parking stickers. Unfortunately none are near the North End with the closest in Downtown Crossing (Lafayette Garage) and at Boston Common.
