Few people in Nyack inspire universal fear and disdain like those men (and women) in the navy hats and powder blue shirts. Meter maids, parking police — they go by many names, but with recent measures the village has taken, fewer of them should now end in an expletive. “Free Fifteen,” a new parking option that was rolled out in January, gives Nyack shoppers 15 free minutes of parking to run quick errands. By simply pressing the green “pay now” button on the meter, a free 15-minute parking ticket will be dispensed.
