Location

Bobst Library is located at 70 Washington Square South (a.k.a. West 4th Street), between La Guardia Pl and University Pl, across from the southeast corner of Washington Square Park (see map below).

Hopstop is good for subway directions, and Triptrop is good for time estimates.

by Subway
If you take the A, B, C, D, E, F or V trains to the West 4th Street stop, exit toward West 3rd Street and walk east.

Alternatively, take the R or W trains to the 8th Street-NYU stop at Broadway and walk southwest.

Taking the 1 to Christopher Street or the 6 to Astor Place are also entirely reasonable options.

by Car
If you’re driving, please contact us at OpenSciNY at gmail dot com, for parking options.

Inside the building
At the security desk (to your right as you enter the library), you’ll need to mention “OpenSciNY” and show photo ID.

Then you can proceed to the Avery Fisher Center for Music and Media (the AFC). It is on the 2nd floor of the building (the elevators are prominent, and the stairs are past the elevators and to your left).

Enter the AFC through the middle double doors, and the Avery Room will be all the way to your right.

Here’s a map (obviously):
