Good to park in the Berean Baptist Church lot. Do not park in the Quinn and Tuite's lot. Sweet Street and Coit Avenue are the nearest major intersection. Sweet runs east and west, Coit runs north and south. Plainfield Avenue and The DAAC are situated Southeast of Sweet and Coit. Plainfield is a diagonal line running between Sweet and Coit in the Southeast quadrant. Saunders Court connects Coit Avenue and Plainfield, running east to west, chopping the triangular city block in half horizontally. The DAAC is on the corner of Saunders Court and Plainfield. Just north of The DAAC is a large parking lot belonging to Berean Baptist church, marked in green as safe to park. Wrapping around The DAAC's building to the west and south is a parking lot belonging to Quinn & Tuite's Pub, marked in red as NOT safe to park. Across the street on Plainfield is another large lot marked green, belonging to the auto collision repair shop.
