Parking Rates
Effective July 1, 2008, the following rates are in effect for the parking facilities at NYU Langone Medical Center:

  • According to the guidelines of the Metropolitan Parking Association, the trade association of the parking industry in New York City, “SUVs and other oversized vehicles 181" or longer and 70" or higher (or 75" high regardless of length) are subject to an extra charge of $10.00 plus [applicable] NYC Parking Tax." NYU Langone Medical Center has established its list of oversized vehicles consistent with the association’s guidelines, although the surcharge is waived for sedans regardless of length. The complete list of oversized vehicles is posted at the parking facilities. NYU Langone Medical Center has also elected to set its surcharge rate below that recommended in the association’s guidelines, so that the total surcharge is $10 including applicable parking taxes.

Claims

  • Due to the number of vehicles in our facilities, there are invariably times when accidents may occur and damage to a vehicle may be sustained. Rapid Parking assumes liability for such damage, subject only to the following:

    1. The customer must inspect his or her own vehicle and identify any damage before exiting the facility.

    2. The customer must also wait for attendant’s inspection of the vehicle prior to exiting the parking facility, and the customer’s ticket must be properly marked to indicate the damage sustained.

    3. The damage must be due to the negligence – or improper handling of your vehicle – by Rapid Parking’s employees.

    4. The customer may not have violated any of the rules outlined above regarding the safe and proper parking of his or her vehicle. If, for instance, the customer has parked his vehicle illegally, personally driven his vehicle onto a lift, or personally retrieved his vehicle from the facility, Rapid Parking’s liability may be voided.
  • To submit a claim, we ask that the claim form be filled out directly with a lot manager and submitted before exiting the facility. Claims reported after a vehicle exits the garage cannot be honored.
  • After the claim has been submitted, the manager of that facility is responsible to do a complete investigation before submitting to the Regional Supervisor. Please allow 5-6 days for the complete investigation; at that time you will receive an official response from Rapid Parking.
  • If you feel that your claim has not been fairly adjudicated, you may contact Edward Berman at (212) 263-2449 or edward.berman@nyumc.org regarding an appeal.
