From Manhattan: We are 5 uptown stops from Times Square (R); 5 uptown stops from Bryant Park (V); 6 uptown stops from Port Authority (E). If you are taking the G from Brooklyn, you change at Court Square to the E or V for one stop.
E, R, V, G (from Manhattan, take front car of train) to Queens Plaza: Get out at the right, “41st Avenue/Northern Boulevard” exit - you are now on our block. Upon exiting the subway stop, just turn right at the corner into the small, dead-end street (41st avenue) street. There is a blue "Outward Bound" sign at the beginning of the street on the opposite building from ours. The building entrance is in the middle of the block.

With Manhattan behind you and preferably on the left-hand side of Queens Plaza, walk east (away from Manhattan) 2-3 blocks following elevated train tracks. Where the tracks split, you will see elevated train tracks and a metered parking area that you head for. At Northern Boulevard cross at the light to 41st Avenue.
From Manhattan: take the Queensboro/59th Bridge lower level. The signs will read “left-Northern Boulevard Right - Queens Boulevard” when the road splits. Veer left towards Northern Boulevard but stay in the right lane of the two lanes. As you veer left towards Northern Boulevard you will make an immediate right at the first light onto 41st Avenue, which is really a short, dead-end street. You will see a vertical banner saying "Outward Bound" on the building on our corner.
From Queens: If coming from La Guardia Airport, take Northern Boulevard West to the 59th street bridge/Manhattan. Just as the road veers right to enter the bridge there will be a light and 41st Avenue (only on the left side) Make an immediate left. If you are coming from Jackson Avenue in LI City, go straight, past the entrance of the bridge towards and where it turns into Northern Boulevard at 41st Avenue, make a left.
From Long Island: take the Saw Mill Parkway S. to I-287 West - Exit 22 toward I-87. Merge onto I-87 toward NYC. Merge onto I-278 West toward Triboro Bridge/NYC. Take exit toward 31st Street/Astoria Blvd/I-278. Turn slight left onto Hoyt Avenue S/ I-278 Truck W. Turn Right onto 31st street. 31st street becomes Northern Boulevard/NY-25A. Turn left onto 41st Avenue (at light).
There is meter parking along Northern Boulevard as well as a section of outdoor meter parking directly in front of us at Queens Plaza. There are two parking lots on Northern Boulevard, each a block from our building and on the same side of the street, one on our block but before our building) and one a block further on Northern Boulevard.
