You still have to pay for parking

NEW YORK (AP) - September 19, 2011

At least not in New York.

But that doesn't mean parking is free in the Big Apple.

The New York Times reports the city is removing the last single-space parking meter in Manhattan today.

The whole city is being converted to the Muni-Meter system.

Drivers pay for parking at a solar-powered machine and put the receipts on their dash.

The new parking payment system also takes credit cards.

Some of the old parking meter poles are being converted to bike racks.
