Directions to get to the Forum -
You can take the B/Q/R to Dekalb Avenue THIS IS THE ONLY SUBWAY stop with an elevator to the street.
When you get out of the elevator or come up the stairs cross Dekalb. You will be going in the right direction if Applebee's is on the corner behind you, a tan building with a large Canopy and lit posters for LIU are in front of you and across Flatbush Avenue are Junior's and DF Jewelry & Pawn Shop. Walk towards Willoughby Street on a long block past the canopy that says LIU, past some construction and a set of trailers that say "Office of Admissions" and "Registrar". You will see a large red and white sculpture with arches. This structure is on the sidewalk directly opposite from the grey/green gates to enter the campus. The Kumble Theater on the LIU Brooklyn Campus will be on your left in a large dark brown building. IF you think you are lost there is a 24 hour police booth just inside the gates and you can get directions. You will be walking parallel with the Flatbush Extension over your shoulder.
You can take the 2/3/4/5 to Nevins Street Walk a short distance to the corner and cross Nevins, then walk a short block to Dekalb.You are going in the right direction if Five Guys is behind you and McDonalds is in front of you. Now follow the directions above
