PARKING Instructions for new location 6380 Wilshire Blvd:
(We are NOT responsible for parking tickets or tows…if our information here is incorrect or out-of date)
Weekdays (Monday-Friday), AFTER 7 pm
FREE PARKING LOT (across the street) at 6401 Wilshire Blvd: Castaway Studios has made arrangements with the parking lot across the street located at 6401 Wilshire Blvd (on the NW corner of La Jolla Avenue and Wilshire)…so that ALL of us (including staff and students) can park for FREE after 6:30pm. There is a sign at the entrance marked 6401 Wilshire. This lot has over 100 parking spaces.
STREET PARKING on Wilshire: Parking along Wilshire Blvd is available at metered spaces for FREE….AFTER 7pm (on weekdays). If you park there before 7pm, there is a great possibility that you will be towed (as this is an anti-gridlock zone from 4-7pm). More specifically, on weekdays, the two signs say: (1.) NO STOPPING between 7am-9am and 4pm-7pm (as this is an anti-gridlock zone an they will quickly come and tow you away); and (2.) one-hour parking between 9am-4pm. Thus, AFTER 7pm, you can park for free all night until 7am.
STREET PARKING on neighborhood side streets: There is abundant (non-metered) parking in the neighborhood if you are willing to walk a couple of blocks (particularly, on the streets that run parallel with Wilshire (both north and south of Wilshire). Please mind the hours on the signs (most streets in the area have street sweeping on Mondays and Tuesdays in the mornings).
PARKING LOT (at our building: 6380 Wilshire Blvd): The lot in OUR building (6380) is NOT open after 6pm (unless you are a tenant with a swipe card).
