    Parking situation at Bronx Lebonon hopsital Bronx NY

    Advertisements



    Hi, I am doing a few rotations at the bronx leb hospital this winter and wanted to ask those familiar with the hospital about parking there. Is there a lot of street parking? Is it safe? What is the closest parking lot to the hospital and how close is it? Are students allowed to park in the employee parking lot? How much would any of the above cost? How hard is it to get a spot in the closest parking lot that doesn't belong to the hospital? Thanks in advance for all contributors.

    i'd advise not parking on the streets near the hospital; unless you come early in the morning, parking spots are hard to come by. Plus, I know of a few residents AND students who have gotten their car broken into (some idiots leave their gps sitting in the open). The employee parking garage is not for students, but there are paid parking lots within 2 blocks from the hospital. I have not used the paid parking before but I hear they are pretty pricey.

    In my opinion, public transportation is the way to go. Not only is it cheaper than paying to park your car everyday, but there are 2 separate subway lines within a 5 minute walking distance (D and the 4 train). Also, if you happen to leave late at night, there is a security car service in the ER that will take students to the train station. You never have to worry if your car is okay if you take public transportation.

    So taking the train at night or even evening in that area is safer than driving? How pricey are we talking about? If it's 200/month I can certainly deal with it till that nightmare is over. Also, I called employmee parking and they said they let students park but I need to check for availability around the beginning of the month. Also, someone mentioned there's a paid parking lot right across from the hospital? Is this true?

    Train is definately the way to go. Once you get the train station, its relatively safe since there is a waiting area with an MTA worker always there and you don't have to wait on the tracks alone. It is definitely safer than walking a couple blocks in the South Bronx alone to get to your car from both the street and the paid parking lot. I never heard of students parking in the employee parking lot, I've been at this hospital over a year and I don't know of anyone who has ever gotten a spot. Sounds like a great myth though. I used the paid parking lot once and if i can recall correctly, it was about 10 dollars to park there for a few hours. Hope this helped

    The Bronx is completely safe to walk around in bright daylight, which in the summer months last till 8, which means noone needs to worry about walking home at night. In the winter months in the northeast, I'm guessing sunlight ends at 6, so while most rotations you don't have to worry, 1 or 2 might be a bit uneasy walking at night, but like what others said, there are safety options involved. Or if you take the D train, it's only a block away, and trains itself are always safe. The thing that scares people is the walk to the subway in darkness.

    If you're going to drive, there are 3 parking garages that offer monthly rates, which is about $120.
    there is a security escort service available, just go to the Adult ER security desk.
    one of the security guards will drive you to your car (whether it's in a parking lot or on the street) or subway station.
    it's a free service and available from dusk til dawn.
