Directions


From the New Brunswick train station to the conference (at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary): (10 minute walk)

If you get off a train coming from New York/Newark:

Exit the train platform by walking down the sidewalk leading away from the tracks at the side of a large parking deck. You will then walk by a Starbucks/Barnes and Noble. (Don’t take the exit requiring you to walk down a large metal staircase – walk up closer to the front of the train to get to the correct exit.) When you reach the street (Somerset Street), you will be able to cross at a crosswalk and then proceed straight onto College Avenue. Walk down College Avenue for about .3 miles. The seminary will be on College Avenue on your right, immediately after Seminary Place intersects College Avenue.

If you get off a train coming from Trenton/Princeton:

You will get off the train and enter the train station. Exit the train station at the bottom of the escalators/stairs and turn right onto Easton Avenue, walking under the train tracks and up a hill to a stoplight. Turn right at the stoplight, on Somerset Street. After ~100 yards, turn left on College Avenue. Walk down College Avenue for about .3 miles. The seminary will be on College Avenue on your right, immediately after Seminary Place intersects College Avenue.


From the conference (at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary) to the Hyatt: (13 minute walk)

Turn left out of the seminary onto College Avenue. After about .3 miles, College Avenue will end at Somerset Street; turn left on Somerset Street. Walk down Somerset Street until it ends at George Street; then turn right on George Street. At the first stoplight, cross the street and turn left on Albany Street. The Hyatt will be on your right after you cross Neilson Street.


From the conference (at the New Brunswick Theological Seminary) to the Heldrich: (16 minute walk)

Turn left out of the seminary onto College Avenue. After about .3 miles, College Avenue will end at Somerset Street; turn left on Somerset Street. Walk down Somerset Street until it ends at George Street; then turn right on George Street. Continue on George Street through several stoplights. The Heldrich will be on your right after Monument Square Park, which is a very small triangular area just after the intersection of George Street with Liberty Street and Livingston Avenue.
