So, i am thinking of relocating to downtown silver spring...Love the area, but, the parking isnt so great, as is to be expected..

My question is...I am looking at apartments in the east west hwy, blair mill rd area and wanted to know how logical my idea is, and if anyone here does this..

Instead of paying $100+ for parking to an apartment complex, since i work from 9-6pm (would leave by 8am), couldnt I just park at lets say Garage 58 (across from that shopping center with the Giant etc)?..From what Ive read, its free from 7am-7pm, so I would only pay for maybe an hour every weekday...The walk isnt too bad to near by complexes..

For anyone who parks there, or other nearby public garages...is there usually parking available around 7pm or later?

I was asking a leasing agent about public parking, and she made it seem like the closet garage was more than a few blocks away, so when I drove by garage 58, I thought.."well maybe you cant park your car their overnight, like from 7pm-7am)


Sorry if its a stupid question...plan on renting soon and this would help my decision.

Here is a website showing Silver Spring parking garages but not sure if it has been updated:


I know you can park overnight in other parking garages but not sure on Garage 58, but I believe it would operate the same way. I don't have a car, but my impression when walking through is there's always plenty of parking overnight throughout all the garages.
