Parking: Our house faces 113th Street, but if you can't find parking on 113th, turn right on 84th, immediately right again onto Bessemer, and park across from the train track.
Take the Southern State and/or Belt Parkway towards JFK airport. Take the Van Wyck Expressway north (away from JFK) to the Jamaica/Hillside exit. From the exit ramp, go straight through the light at Jamaica, and turn left at the next light onto Hillside. After about 0.6 mile and about 8 (synchronized) lights, you'll cross Lefferts, and Hillside will curve to the left, with a library on the left and shops on the right. Just before it goes under a train viaduct, turn right onto Babbage and parallel the train track. At the end of Babbage, turn left under the track onto 84th. Take the first or second left (onto Bessemer or 113th, respectively), and park. We're the second house down on either street.
Take the Grand Central or the van Wyck to the Robinson (nee Interboro) Parkway, the only way it goes. Take the first exit, Exit 6, for Metropolitan Avenue. Turn east (that's left) onto Metropolitan and cross Forest Park. Take the first right after the park onto Park Lane South. After four blocks Park Lane South veers right; take the next left onto 112th, the first left onto 84th, and the first right onto 113th. We're the second house on the left.
Take the Robinson Parkway to the Metropolitan Avenue exit, turn right (east) onto Metropolitan, and cross Forest Park. Take the first right after the park onto Park Lane South. After four blocks Park Lane South veers right; take the next left onto 112th, the first left onto 84th, and the first right onto 113th. We're the second house on the left.
Take the J train to the 111th Street stop in Queens. Go through the turnstiles, turn right, down the stairs, and you're now on 111th Street facing north. Keep going about three blocks to 85th Avenue (just after Myrtle). Turn right on 85th, left on 113th, and our house is on the right, the second house before the street ends.
Take the A train to the Ozone Park terminus, transfer to the Q-10 bus northbound, and see Q-10 bus directions below.
Take the E train to the Kew Gardens/Union Turnpike stop, transfer to the Q-37 or Q-10 bus southbound (the only way they go), and see bus directions below. (The Q-37 runs closer to our house, but the Q-10 runs more frequently.)
Take the Q-37 bus along Park Lane South and get off at 112th Street. Walk along 112th in the only direction it goes, downhill away from the park, take your first left onto 84th Avenue and your first right onto 113th Street. We're the second house on your left.
Take the Q-10 bus along Lefferts Blvd. When the bus crosses Metropolitan Avenue, pull the cord or push the tape or whatever; get off at the next cross street, 84th Avenue. Walk west (up-hill is north) along 84th Avenue, six short blocks through a residential neighborhood, cross under a train track, turn left onto 113th Street, and we're the second house on your left.
Take the Q-55 bus along Myrtle Avenue and get off at 113th Street. Walk north (up-hill) on 113th two blocks until the street ends; we're the second-to-last house on your right.
If it's not convenient to get to the Kew Gardens station, see Jamaica Train Station above. If it is, get off at the Kew Gardens station (be sure to be in one of the first four cars). Follow signs to the Q-10 bus stop, wait for a bus coming from your left, and see Q-10 bus directions above. Or if you're in the mood to walk, turn right on Lefferts and walk about five blocks to 84th Avenue (the next street after Metropolitan), then see Q-10 bus directions.
That should cover almost anybody who's coming here.
