OMG... what a great question! (I'm not being sarcastic.)

I feel so devalued as an urban enthusiast, because I've never even thought about such a thing before... where does everyone park for these really old towers?

I guess I've just always assumed that newer developments include enough parking to make up for the old ones that lack their own garages... or I guess I've imagined new garages being burrowed out underground, under these old towers.

no....there are commercial garages in New York where one can park and driving in Manhattan is insane....many take cabs or the subway.

I really doubt that there ever was a parking garage in the ESB unless that garage was mostly a loading dock for trucks.
