ALBANY, NY – Beginning Friday August 5, 2022, through Saturday, August 27, 2022, there will be various parking restrictions and road closures throughout the month to accommodate HBO filming of The Gilded Age in the City of Albany. View a complete list of restrictions and closures including maps.

In an attempt to mitigate the anticipated impact on parking, normal parking regulations will be suspended for the duration of the filming in the affected areas, which includes from Quail Street to S. Swan Street and Washington Avenue to Madison Avenue, as well as all of Washington Park and Englewood Place. Move over and timed restrictions will NOT be in effect in the impacted areas. 

A portion of the University at Albany Thurlow Terrace Parking Lot on Western Avenue between Englewood Place and Thurlow Terrace will be accessible to the public to use as available until 6 p.m. Sunday, August 14, 2022. Per an agreement between the production company and the University, the other portion of the lot is reserved for HBO production crews until August 14. After August 14, only those with University-issued parking permits will be permitted to park in the Thurlow Terrace lot.

Emergency No Parking signs will be posted in all of the impacted areas. Parking enforcement will continue for quality of life issues including but not limited to, vehicles blocking fire hydrants, crosswalks and no parking zones. Parking meters are in effect unless noted otherwise and residential parking permits will remain in effect during this time.
