Parking in Lambertville can be a challenge—but we continue to improve the parking situation, adding needed parking spaces and providing more convenient ways to manage parking meters. Since we are a very compact community and attract many tourists and other visitors, finding parking during certain peak times sometimes requires patience. This year, we continued to explore additional parking to relieve congestion in the Central Business District. Negotiations continue with Black River and Western Railroad for the construction of additional spaces on their property alone D & R Canal.
