Icon Parking Systems' parking facilities safely house vehicles of all shapes and sizes as owners go to work, relax at home, or take in the sights of the Big Apple. Conveniently tucked in the most prestigious corners of Manhattan—which are also the areas least menaced by aimless teenage tow-trucks—these lots offer easy access to any number of restaurants, Broadway theaters, and concert halls. Many automotive stables have no daily or weekly time limit, so drivers may come and go as they please or leave rides in the same spot for dedicated, month-long portraits. Monthly customers can sign up for the Preferred Customer Club, which grants them an exclusive card and half-off parking at any of Icon Parking Systems' 200 facilities or UFO landing pads scattered throughout Manhattan.
Jay Leno and Ralph Lauren may each own a lot of cars, but their fleets are nothing compared to the number of vehicles Impark Parking must protect in a single day. The company operates more than 2,000 parking facilities in 34 cities throughout North America, from Atlanta to Baltimore to Winnipeg. That accounts for nearly half a million parking spots in total, a far cry from the single lot that Impark—then known as Imperial Parking—started out with. Today, more than 50 years later, it operates as a fully integrated company with expertise in garage management, carbon neutral practices, and recycling.
