A variety of transportation choices are available within New York City, however taxis are generally the most convenient and safest. Please consider whether luggage, etc., will make travel on public transportation too difficult. Also, please be aware that only yellow cabs may legally solicit customers with offers of transportation; use official taxi stands whenever possible, especially at airports.

By Car

The most direct way from most locations is to follow directions leading to the George Washington Bridge, then exit onto the Henry Hudson Parkway, and then onto Riverside Drive (south). From there, continue south and turn left onto 165th Street (the first left south of the bridge). Proceed one block and turn right onto Ft. Washington Avenue, then turn right into the Medical Center parking garage.

  • From upstate New York and New Jersey
    After crossing the George Washington Bridge, follow signs to the Henry Hudson Parkway (also called the West Side Highway), and then to Riverside Drive.
  • From Riverdale and Westchester via the Saw Mill River Parkway
    Exit the Henry Hudson Parkway at the Riverside Drive exit immediately past the George Washington Bridge.
  • From Westchester, Connecticut, and the East Side of Manhattan via the Major Deegan, Cross-Bronx Expressway, or Harlem River Drive
    Approaching the George Washington Bridge, take the Henry Hudson Parkway exit; on the approach to the Hendry Hudson Parkway, stay to the left and follow signs to Riverside Drive.
  • From the West Side of Manhattan
    Take the Henry Hudson Parkway to Exit 15-Riverside Drive South.
