Beware: Towing Of Illegal Parkers Begins In Dayton Plaza Lot


It doesn’t seem to matter at all if you are a customer of the C-Town Supermarket or of CVS Pharmacy or of any of the other stores that border the Dayton Plaza Shopping Center lot on Rockaway Beach Boulevard between Beach 84 Street and Beach 89 Street that hosts more than a dozen stores. If you are parked in the lot for more than two hours, you are likely going to get a sticker on your window and, after an hour more, you are going to be towed and will have to pay big bucks to get your car back, the lot’s management warns. The new policy, which began last week, is designed to keep parking slots free for shoppers, the manager of C-Town told The Wave.
