The Cherrydale Volunteer Fire Department Fire House is at 3900 Lee Highway (U.S. Route 29), Arlington, VA 22207, at the intersection of N. Pollard St. It is one block east of a north-south thoroughfare named Military Rd. north of Lee Highway and N Quincy St. to the south of Lee Highway.
Driving Directions to the Fire House: If you are not familiar with the area, it is highly advisable to use a GPS and/or consult Google Maps for a good map and directions. The Fire House is on a major east-west thoroughfare (Lee Highway, Route 29) in a dense mixture of old and new commercial and residential buildings. Since singers will be coming from many directions, only general driving guidance can be given here, and one should use a GPS in one's car or on one's cell phone for the best route. Nevertheless, here are some recommendations:
If I-66 is in your preferred route, here is the exit information: If one is coming from the west going east on I-66, take Exit 72 to Lee Highway and turn left (west) and go around 0.3 mile to get to the Fire House. If one is coming from the east going west, take Exit 71 to Glebe Rd. north, and then after 0.1 mile turn right at N 15th St.; go 0.6 ml and turn left on N Quincy St.; then go 0.5 ml to Lee Highway, ideally finding a parking place on Quincy St. close to Lee Highway and the Fire House.
Public Transportation to the Fire House: Fortunately one can reach the venue by a combination of Metrorail and the Arlington Transit (ART) bus 55. Use the WMATA Trip Planner. The only bus route running by the Fire House on weekends is apparently the ART route 55, which runs between the East Falls Church and Rosslyn Metro Stations (Orange and Silver lines) along Lee Highway, stopping within one block of the Fire House. The ART 55 buses run every 20 minutes of Saturdays and every 30 minutes on Sundays. The Fire House is also 1.2 miles from the Ballston and Virginia Square Metro stations, but there appears to be no bus service from these stations to the Fire House on weekends. There is a Capital Bikeshare dock two blocks away at N. Monroe St. on the north side of Lee Highway.
Parking: There is no designated parking for the Fire House Hall. The management recommends street parking. Consider parking on the residential streets just south of the Fire House, observing signs. These streets include N. Pollard St., N. Oakland St., 20th St. N, 18th St. N, and N Quincy St. (Fortunately most of the homes have driveways for the residents' own cars.) The street with the most available spaces should be N. Quincy St., which is one block west of N Pollard St. One could also park on residential streets on the north side of Lee Highway, but that would require crossing busy Lee Highway to get to the Fire House. One should avoid parking in the lots for the stores on the north side of Lee Highway (including a large Safeway), since the parking spaces are marked for use only by patrons of those stores. (Some signs threaten car towing.)
