The NYC2600 meetings take place in the Atrium at 875 Third Avenue. The Atrium is on the corner of 53rd Street and 3rd Ave, right across from our former home at Citigroup Center. There is a nice atrium with connections to lots of amenities, including the Lexington Avenue subway station.
As of the July 2021 meeting, we have been meeting outdoors at the main entrance to the building on 53rd Street and 3rd Avenue, and that remains the plan for the time being. The overhanging roof over the plaza protects the area from rain and provides some shade, but be sure to dress for the outdoor temperature. Restrooms are accessible inside.
The easiest way by far for most people in the area to get to the Atrium is to take the subway.
From Penn Station, and from the New York City Port Authority, the E train is quickest and easiest. Just hop on an uptown E train, and get off at the Lexington Avenue station. Follow the exit signs to 3rd Avenue, which will lead you directly into the Atrium’s food court.
From Grand Central Station, take the uptown 6 train just one stop to the Lexington Avenue station. Or, just walk two blocks East to 3rd Avenue, and then eight blocks uptown (North) on 3rd Avenue, and you’ll reach 53rd and 3rd.
If you’re willing to spend a little extra cash, you may find it easier to take a taxi from your starting point in NYC to 53rd and 3rd. For a beginner’s guide to the subways and taxis, see our NYC Transit page.
