Chevrolet Hosts “Park a Spark” Challenge to Crown NYC’s Best Parallel Parker


Every day, 1.63 million commuters enter Manhattan for work, 16.2% of which travel by car (approximately 259,000)*. With so many people traveling into the densest city in the US - more than 27,000 people living in just one square mile of the Big Apple - parking has never come easy**. With this in mind, Chevrolet has teamed up with a panel of local NYC parking experts to identify some of the city’s top parallel parkers and put them through the ultimate city driving test in the Chevrolet Spark.

The participants will be put through the gauntlet in GM’s first ever parallel parking contest in one of the toughest neighborhoods to parallel park – West Village. Contestants selected from a social media call for entry will take part in a series of challenges to park between iconic NYC props, such as a yellow cab and a city hot dog truck. The contestant to fit in the tightest space without bumping any props will be crowned NYC’s Par-king or queen!


Be sure to stop by and witness the challenge first-hand, as well as meet with GM representatives and some of the expert judges, including Gridlock Sam.
