What building were you working? For future reference, there's parking on Temple Street about one or two blocks east of Los Angeles Street. The lot is right across the street from the federal building with the big "bullet hole" statues. There's also another lot on Los Angeles and 2nd St, which is about 2 or 3 blocks south of the L.A. Mall. I used to work in City Hall East; so I know and feel your pain.
