Subway: The closest subway line is the 1, 2 or 3, which all stop at West 96th & Broadway.  Look up 96th Street from Broadway and you will see the church on the corner of West 96th & Amsterdam Avenue.  The parish offices and the friary are entered midway between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway on the north side of 96th Street.  The Franciscan Community Center is around the corner at 214 West 97th Street, between West 97th Street and Amsterdam Avenue.  The Center is on the south side of the street.  The local “B” and “C” trains are a bit further but they stop at West 96th Street and Central Park.  When exiting the station, walk west on 96th Street to Amsterdam Avenue.

Bus: Two cross-town buses stop at Amsterdam Avenue: the M-96 and M-106.  The M-7 or M-11 serves Amsterdam Avenue and stops at 96th Street.  The M-104 serving Broadway makes a stop at 97th (or is it 98th ) Street.

Driving: From the Henry Hudson Parkway, take the West 95th-96th Street exit.  If the West 96th Street exit is taken, continue three blocks east to Amsterdam Avenue.  If the West 95th Street exit is taken, continue three blocks east to Amsterdam Avenue, turn left and the church is one block north.
