The NYC2600 meetings take place in Citigroup Center on the corner of 53rd Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan, New York. We meet at the food court on the lower level, now known after an extensive remodeling as The Hugh.
For info on the Hugh, including the extensive array of restaurants and facilities available, visit TheHughNYC.com.
The easiest way by far for most people in the area to get to Citigroup is to take the subway.
From Penn Station or the Port Authority the E train is quickest and easiest. Just hop on an uptown E train, and disembark at the Lexington Avenue station.
The 53rd St entrance of the Lexington Avenue Subway Station sits right underneath the Citigroup building, just outside the doors, in their small outdoor plaza. Exit the subway there and you’re already at Citigroup’s welcoming glass doors.
From Grand Central Station take the uptown 6 train just one stop to the Lexington Avenue station. Alternately, just walk one block East to Lexington Avenue and then eight blocks uptown (North) on Lexington Avenue and you’ll reach 53rd and Lexington. Citigroup is the corner with wide stairs leading downward into a cut-out corner of the building.
A sidewalk-level entrance to the building also exists on 53rd St. between 3rd and Lexington avenues, under a big red “The HUGH” sign, and leads right down the main stairs to the food court.
If you’re willing to spend a little extra cash, you may find it easier to take a taxi or rideshare from your starting point in NYC to the corner of 53rd and Lexington.
