A huge U.S. flag is unfurled on the USS Intrepid during last year's Memorial Day ceremonies.
Here's what you need to know this Memorial Day in New York City:
CLOSURES, STREET PARKING & CLEANING
Schools, banks, and post offices are closed. City offices are closed. Public schools are closed. (Most restaurants, stores and attractions are open on Memorial Day. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is open on Memorial Day as part of the special Met Holiday Mondays.)
Additional traffic rules: Stopping, standing, and parking are permitted, except in areas where stopping, standing, and parking rules are in effect seven days a week (for example, "No Standing Anytime"). However, parking meters will not be in effect on major legal holidays.
All routine maintenance work on MTA bridges and tunnels are suspended through the end of morning rush Tuesday, May 31. (The exception is long-term construction closures at the Bronx-Whitestone and Henry Hudson bridges.)
