southern state parkway 


Take the George Washington Bridge to the Cross Bronx Expressway (eastbound). Follow this all of the way to the Throgs Neck Bridge heading for Long Island.

When exiting the Throgs Neck Bridge, take the Cross Island Parkway (either eastbound or southbound) to take the Southern State Parkway eastbound. From this point, follow directions in the third paragraph on this page.


Take any major route out of Manhattan (such as the Grand Central Parkway, Long Island Expressway, or Belt Parkway) heading eastbound for Long Island.

From the north shore, take the Cross Island Parkway (southbound). Follow all of the way to the end, where you take the Southern State Parkway (eastbound).

If you are coming from Brooklyn, you will find that the Belt Parkway merges into the Southern State Parkway as you continue eastbound. Follow the Southern State Parkway to exit 19S, which is Peninsula Boulevard. Continue southbound on Peninsula Boulevard approximately 1.5 miles. At the traffic light, turn left onto Lakeview Avenue. At the very next block, you will see our school.

Just beyond the school building is the faculty parking lot. You can turn right into the parking lot and unload your equipment at the rear entrance. Since there is limited parking available, you may want to find a spot along the street adjoining the playground, immediately next to the parking lot.

Please do not park in the faculty parking spaces or you will be asked to move your vehicle.


Get to the Southern State Parkway from points north and east by taking either the Wantagh Parkway or the Meadowbrook Parkway southbound. Take the Southern State Parkway westbound to exit 19S. Follow the directions in the paragraph just above this one.
