Directions

FROM LA GUARDIA AIRPORT:

Exit LaGuardia Airport following signs for the Grand Central Parkway (G.C.P) East. Take exit 9E Whitestone Expressway/Flushing Meadow Corona Park. Travel about 1/2 mile and take the Kennedy Airport Van Wyck Expressway South exit. Travel approx. 1 mile and get off at exit 11 Flushing Meadow Corona Park. Stay right and exit at Flushing Corona Park Meadow Lake. See directions to race site within Flushing Meadow Corona Park. (see map)

FROM KENNEDY AIRPORT:

Exit Kennedy Airport to Van Wyck Expressway North. Drive approx. 5 miles to exit 12A East L.I. Expressway. Immediately on the left you will see a brown road sign announcing Meadow Lake. Turn left about 100 meters past this sign. This is a U-turn under the expressway which places you on the access road for the Van Wyck Expressway going South. Stay to your right and take the first exit you come to marked Flushing Meadow Corona Park/ Meadow Lake. See directions to race site within Flushing Meadow Corona Park. (see map)

DIRECTIONS TO RACE SITE WITHIN FLUSHING MEADOW CORONA PARK:

After exiting the Van Wyck Expressway, make a right at the end of the exit. You are now in the Park and must obey the 5 mph speed limit. Continue approximately 1/2 mile keeping to the right. Cross over the small bridge (proceeding through a"Do Not Enter" sign) and stay left on the other side. Continue on the main road keeping Meadow Lake in sight. The race site is 400 meters from the bridge by the brick Park Comfort Station. (see map)

The closest subway station is Mets-Willets Point on the number 7 subway line (see subway map).

Exit the train and follow the signs to Flushing Meadows Corona Park. This will lead you across a bridge. Essentially, you'll first head for the Unisphere - pass it - and then walk over a highway to get to the North end of Meadow Lake. (see map)
