First Unitarian Society in Newton parish hall, 1326 Washington Street, Newton, Massachusetts

FAC’s dance space at the First Unitarian Society in Newton Parish Hall is located at the corner of Washington and Highland Streets in West Newton, near where Route 16 crosses the Mass. Turnpike. The FUSN church is across the street from the Newton Police Station and a block west of the West Newton Cinema.

There is also limited parking in the Santander Bank lot (across Highland Street from the church) when the bank is closed. Note that this lot enforces the restrictions on many of its spaces at all times, and violators are towed:
