The New 500 space parking deck has just opened 200 feet past our LP, DVD Store and CD Store (on 20 South Tulane St), and easy access to other downtown Princeton stores and restaurants.

Entrance one: to enter the parking deck, drive past our CD store on 20 South Tulane Street, make a left into the adjacent parking lot, exit the lot onto Spring Street, and enter the parking deck.

Entrance two: there is also an entrance on Wiggin Street, that runs parallel to Nassau Street and is located at the end of North Tulane Street and end of Vandeventer Street (571 Washington Road).

Parking fees: park for less than thirty minutes and there is no charge. After thirty minutes, the parking rate is $1 per hour, except .25 cents per 2 hours on Sunday. You have the option to pay three different ways.

1) You may pay with a Smart Card. It operates much like a debit card, and may be recharged with a 10 percent discount each time. The Smart Card is currently available at the Wiggins Street Entrance and Exit, the new Princeton Public Library (adjacent to parking lot on Witherspoon Street), or Princeton Boro Hall (past Nassau Street Stores going west). It will soon be available at the Spring Street Entrance, which is closest to our dvd and cd store.

More Princeton Parking

Here is your guide to Princeton's parking areas, both metered and non-metered. This text will help guide the Princeton visiting record collector to the parking space needed, as well as to Princeton's unique blend of fine stores or sampling some of the varied cuisine, or visiting its many historic sites.

There are hundreds of two hour meters in downtown Princeton's busiest areas and on the outskirts of the central business district you can, at lower rates, park at the long-term meters and walk into the center of town.

Other Parking Garages Within 3 Blocks of Princeton Record Exchange:

There are two other parking garages within 1000 feet: the Palmer Square Parking Garage, and the Hulfish Street Parking Garage. These indoor ramped garages provide long-term and overnight parking.

Princeton's Central Business District is most active in the early afternoon. Parking spaces for the CD and record collector (especially if you have a large collection to sell) are more readily available before 11:00 a.m. and after 2:30 p.m. If your visit coincides with the town's busiest hours, the most accessible parking can be found at the garages or the outlying streets. On these streets there are usually metered parking spaces available. Five and ten hour metered parking spaces are often available on Witherspoon Street just north of Wiggins Street.

There is also free parking after 5:00 p.m. weekdays, and all day Saturday and Sunday to consider parking either in the two university lots off William St., or you can park at Princeton Borough Hall (Where route 206 and 27 come together).
