Getting here is easy.



We’re located right at the end of Metro-North’s Harlem line, a ~2-hour ride from Grand Central.

Our Getaway Package donates $5 of your ticket price to the Wassaic Project and saves you up to $20 round-trip on peak trains. It’s available Friday to Sunday in summer, and on Saturdays in winter. Here’s what to do:

1. Go to any MTA kiosk.
2. Find the “Getaways” tab. This’ll take a couple extra touches.
3. Scroll all the way down to Wassaic.
4. Buy it!*

Along with your ticket, you'll get a "Special Event" ticket. No need to show it once you arrive (although it might make a nice keepsake).

Once you’re here, get a ride with the Taxi Man or take a short walk into town along Route 22.



It's best to just use GPS on your phone to route your way here (37 Furnace Bank Road, Wassaic, NY 12592). If you're coming from Brooklyn:

1. Take I-678 North
2. To Hutchinson Parkway
3. To I-684 North
4. To NY-22 North
5. Turn right onto Furnace Bank Road

Parking is available at Maxon Mills, The Lantern, and Luther Barn. Limited street parking is available as well. Try to carpool, especially for our larger events!

Accessibility matters.

We operate out of historic agricultural buildings, so many of our spaces are not accessible at this time. The ground floor of Maxon Mills has ramp access through a side entrance, and an ADA compliant bathroom accessible from outside. The Auction Ring, where we host our artist lecture series in the summer, has some seating that is accessible by ramp. Our other spaces are all up at least one set of steps. Visitors who need to move around, twitch, pace, or not make eye contact are welcome. If you have access needs not addressed here, email us and we’ll work with you to support them.
