Parking for Crew

The Harris House is located in a residential area which has limited street parking. To accommodate our neighbors and the City of Glendale, crew may not use street parking on the 100 block of N. Cedar. Smaller productions that don’t have a large truck are welcome to park in the driveway and other nearby streets. Larger productions should look into nearby parking space rental.
