PARKING LOTS NEAR THE MEETING HOUSE
On-street parking is available (with some restrictions during rush hour) as the way may open. Parking regulations are strictly enforced. There are two commercial parking garages nearby:
(1) The first is in the Universal Building at 2005 Florida Ave. That's just across Connecticut Avenue on the left when heading east from the Meetinghouse, between the drug store and the post office. This garage is open from 7 AM to midnight from Monday through Saturday and 4 PM to midnight on Sunday. The door says "permit parking only," but one-day parking is OK.
(2) If that garage is full, take the next left onto T Street. Almost immediately on the left will be "Universal North Public Parking," open 7 AM till 7 PM weekdays and closed on weekends. It's just across from the side entrance to the Washington Hilton. (No vans or trucks allowed - 5'7" clearance.)
