December 6, 1998 | CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT, Christopher Knight is The Times' art critic
Whenever I think of the new Getty Center, which is fast approaching the first anniversary of its debut in a breathtaking setting on a ridge high above Brentwood, immediately I think of two things: art (which is good) and hassle (which isn't). Going to the Getty during these last many months has turned out to offer boundless opportunities for satisfying artistic experiences; getting to the Getty has been a pain in the . . . well, neck. The place is packed, but crowds per se are not the problem.

Five and a half years ago, when dust was still rising at the Getty Center and all the world was speculating about what, exactly, the $1.3-billion castle on a hill would be, the Getty's No. 1 art guy made an astonishing statement. "We have gained respect for visitors who don't come to a museum with the idea they are visiting a school or library, but as if they are going to a park," said John Walsh, a scholar of Dutch painting who directed the J. Paul Getty Museum from 1983 to 2000.

Visitors who drive to the Getty Center are encouraged to make parking reservations to ensure their admittance to the center's parking structure, museum officials said. The Getty Center has attracted large crowds during the holiday season and the center has parking for only 1,200 cars. Last week, the Los Angeles City Council imposed a two-hour parking restriction in neighborhoods surrounding the museum (residents are exempted).
