What's the statute of limitations on a fist high stack of parking tickets in the Big Apple?

Let's say I have a stack of parking tickets in NYC in the 1990's and early 2000's. What are the chances they're going to come up if I get a license in NYS again?

So in my poor and desperate years I used to get a lot of parking tickets and not pay them. After I'd racked a bunch I would go to an adjacent state, get a new license, sometimes new car plates and then start the process again.I remember the last time I lived in NYC I had a very sizable amount from the last time I did it.
Since then I moved to LA. Got a new license and new plates AND changed my last name. Now I may be moving back to NYC. What are the chances that this is going to come up? My guess is very low but you never know. Is there any way to check for outstanding parking tickets BEFORE you switch licenses?
