To arrive by subway, take the "A" train to the last stop. Come out the stairs at the front of the train, and go up the hill alongside the church. This entrance is right in front of you. The distance between the meeting place and the subway is two short blocks at Isham and Seaman Streets. Click here to learn more about Inwood Hill Park. You do not need to bring a telescope. I will provide telescopes to look through. It is an amazing view of the heavens. You'll see planets, stars and nebulae!
