PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- Kirit Patel hadn't heard that metered parking in the municipal lots on Highland Street along Main Street were recently limited to two hours, but he instantly knew what it meant for the Indian restaurant where he works. "It's good for business," said Patel. "There will be more customers coming and going." The Village Board of Trustee unanimously voted to establish the two-hour limit at its regular meeting Tuesday. Initially, several parking spots had a maximum limit of 12 hours. Now, all 35 spots in the north and south lots have a two-hour limit. Port Chester resident Jose Estrada said it was common for people to park their cars in the lot, which is close to the Metro-North station, and then take the train for a day in New York City. "It's good because sometimes nobody can find parking," said Estrada. "But for those people who want to go to the city, it will be bad." What do you think of the two-hour limit at the Highland Street municipal parking lots?
