By Foot or Bicycle

Many of us walk or bicycle to the Meeting House, which is on the southeast corner of Schermerhorn and Boerum Place.

For walkers, we have smooth sidewalks and plenty of space where you can hang your coat and hat.

For cyclists, there are painted bike lanes on the streets bordering our Meeting House and there is ample bicycle parking. We have two large bike racks in our courtyard and, when these are full, there are several sidewalk bike racks nearby.
