I’m moving to Brooklyn next month and hearing a lot of parking garages in NYC don’t accept Tesla’s due to liability. Anyone have experience or recommendations?

I wouldn't park any car in a garage that refuses Teslas. It implies that they're certain your car will be damaged, broken into, or stolen, and they don't want to pay for it.

At least in Manhattan, most garages seem to take my Tesla. I sometimes use PlugShare (www. plugshare.com) to try to choose a garage that has a tesla charger in it, figuring that means they have more experience.

Glad to see this thread. I'm waivering on whether to drive down to Manhattan tomorrow morning. Would get there and park. In my past experience, the garages I've seen there all take your car and then go park it for you. I'd strongly prefer to park the car myself. Haven't gotten comfortable handing off the credit card key.

Do folks have good recommendations on self-parking locations in the vicinity of 59th St (south Central Park)?

@Zak - you rock. Thanks. I will get that app!
I think you have to reserve the spot via the app in order to get that deal. $19 is supper cheap for Saturday - very likely the ev charging will be taken.

@Zak - I didn't reserve as I was flip flopping on going. Ended up going ... the app worked great. Thanks for the recommendation! Will come in handy in the future. I should have figured there would be an app like that.
