If you're driving in, here's a tip. Parking in Jersey City, Hoboken, or near pretty much any stop along the PATH train line will get your car towed. However, if you park your car in the neighborhoods surrounding NJ Transit lines, you may get away with it. I can't say I've scouted any of these locations, but I know that suburban NJ has significantly fewer parking restrictions than urban NJ.
That being said, if a strange car is left on the street for weeks at a time (because that's how long we're hoping this is going to last, right?) it may get scooped up by the cops as abandoned. Really, your best bet is to take a Bolt Bus / Fung Wah Bus / MegaBus from wherever you are, to New York.
However, if shit goes down, and you feel like you need to get the hell out of New York City as soon as possible, you won't have your car. It's a trade off. Weigh your options, and consider what you're planning on doing and how. If you just want to serve sandwiches, then you'll probably be okay and won't need to get out of the city fast. If you're planning on punching bankers and breaking windows... not so much.
