Join us February 8th for TEDxNorthAdams 2020.
Follow Route 2 West through Greenfield and over the Mohawk Trail into North Adams (North Adams is 130 miles from Boston). Approximately 3 miles past the hairpin turn, you will come to the first traffic light (at Dunkin Donuts and McDonald’s in North Adams). Go straight through that set of lights. At the next set of lights (just after the Super Big Y supermarket), take a right on to Holden Street and an immediate left on to St. Anthony’s Drive. Drive to the end of that short street, and the MASS MoCA parking lot will be directly ahead of you at the traffic light.
Take the FDR Drive North to Willis Avenue bridge to Major Deegan Expressway/Route 87 North, to Saw Mill River Parkway North, to Taconic State Parkway North. You will be on the Taconic for approximately an hour and a half. (Alternatively, from the west side, take Henry Hudson Parkway North, to Saw Mill, to Taconic).
From the Taconic, exit off Route 295 East (in East Chatham, NY—exit sign says “last exit before toll”) and follow 295 East to Route 22. Take Route 22 North (follow signs carefully through Lebanon, NY, the road turns right at the light and jogs left at a closed gas station at the end of the New Lebanon strip) to Route 43 East (in Stephentown, NY). Route 43 will be a sharp right at a traffic light about 5 miles outside New Lebanon.
Route 43 intersects Route 7 at “The Store at Five Corners” in Williamstown, MA. Turn left (north) on Route 7 and drive approximately 5 miles to the Field Park roundabout in the center of Williamstown. Follow signs for Route 2 East. In approximately 5 miles, in the center of North Adams, you will bear right on to an off-ramp marked “exit for downtown business district, Route 8.” At the bottom of the exit ramp (at the traffic light), take a left on to Marshall Street. Drive under the overpass, and MASS MoCA will be directly on the left. Note: it is 5.2 miles from the intersection of Routes 2 & 7 in Williamstown to the exit ramp to downtown North Adams.
