You will enter the building on the A Street entrance, and check in with security. Let them know you are here to serve dinner, and they will show you to the kitchen.
The Sixth Ave entrance is Family Health Centers, and it does not connect to the PATH side of the building.
For parking, there is no designated PATH parking, although there are many garages and meters located around our building.
The meters range from 1hr to 2hr parking and cost $1.25/hour.
The average price per garage is $2.00/20 minutes.
