Beware! 11/19/2012

Long story short we were charged $40 extra for locking the car door and rolling up our car window. My family & I were visiting New York to take the tour of NYU on 11/17/12. When we arrived at the garage the attendant met us at the entrance, asked for how long to park the car, placed a ticket on the car, gave us a copy, took the keys, & drove off to park the car. Before heading to NYU, we made a stop. It was there that my wife remembered she had forgotten her credit cards in the car. I returned to the garage to retrieve them & asked a different attendant if that would be possible. He directed me to the car's location on an upper level. I set off to get the credit cards. Upon arriving at the vehicle I found the window & door open, though there was no key in the ignition, so after getting the credit cards, I went back to the post office. I informed my wife of the state the vehicle was in & we decided to go back and roll the windows and lock the car door, so I took her set of keys, returned to the vehicle and locked it. When we returned & asked for the car, paid & I went to the exit, looked upstairs & saw the parking attendant looking at the car, I pressed the remote to open the door to save him the trouble of opening it. A few seconds he drove down with the car, told us we owed $40 more. We said what for? He said we locked the car, we said so what, he said we're not allowed to so we have to give him $40. We said nobody told us that, he said it's the rules and we knew. We told him we didn’t. He took us to the manager who was the same person that took the car from us. He said there was a sign in the place that stated the rule which is true but as he was the attendant who parked our car he knew full well we did not read it since he met us before we could reach where the sign was placed. After going backwards & forwards, we paid and left. We would not recommend them & if you do decide to park your car there, Make Sure to Read All of the Signs Posted on the Walls. more
