68 Apartments for rent in Tonawanda, NY with Parking
Tonawanda, N.Y., has the distinction of becoming the first town in the United States to exceed a population of 100,000 people -- it's always fun to live in a city that lays claim to a "first."
The town of Tonawanda is a northern suburb of Buffalo, N.Y., and contains the historic Village of Kenmore. Together, Kenmore and Tonawanda are often referred to by locals as Ken-Ton. Tonawanda owes its initial growth spurt to the construction of the Erie Canal in 1825. The town has taken full advantage ever since, with a strong industrial base and ability to attract business. The Erie Canal is on the north side of the town, and the Niagara River forms the western border. There is highway access with Interstate 190 running along the western edge of the town. You can easily get to Buffalo, only 10 miles south, and up to Niagara Falls, only 15 miles to the north. See more
Parking can be at a premium in some cities where spaces are challenging to find. Some Tonawanda apartments offer parking options, either outside in a common area or within a private garage.
Ask about the stipulations around the parking. Those may include how many guests are allowed and where tenants park.
Some apartments may only allow parking in front of your own unit. Guest parking may be in a common area for up to one person.
If parking is scarce, look around the area before you sign a lease. Ample street parking in a neighborhood championed for its safety is probably fine. However, it’s probably not worth signing a lease if it means battling for daily parking for you and your guests.
Research whether you need a city permit to park in the neighborhood. Look into the associated costs and what to do about visitors who need parking.
Some tenants prefer garage parking near their units. However, an open-air lot may prove cheaper.
Keep in mind that the cost of wear and tear from parking outside can add up. It may be less expensive, in the long run, to look for an apartment with garage parking.
