Getting to TOM House

Our bus stop is Sunset/Echo Park. We are serviced by Metro lines 4/704 and 2/302. Also the 603 to Alvarado/Sunset.

Continue on Sunset Boulevard to Laveta Terrace, then up the short hill and up the Grand Stairs until Laveta Terrace levels out and another 1/2 block. TOM House is on your left. The House is only a 0.3 mile walk from the bus stop.

Laveta Terrace is a residential street so our friends at Taix French Restaurant have allowed us to use their auxiliary parking lot for events. You can park behind Taix at the corner of Reservoir and Liberty Streets. Just north of Sunset and east of Alvarado, across the street from the church.

We will have a shuttle running on the 1/2 hour to TOM House. It will stop at the parking lot and the southwest corner of Montana Street and Echo Park Avenue.

THE LOUVRE
“I know my little ‘dirty drawings’ are never going to hang in the main salons of the Louvre, but it would be nice if — I would like to say ‘when,’ but I better say ‘if’ — our world learns to accept all the different ways of loving. Then maybe I could have a place in one of the smaller side rooms.” (1991)
— Tom of Finland
