General Directions to the NES and LINAC buildings

From the New York State Thruway (Interstates 90 and 87), east from Buffalo or north from New York City, leave the Thruway at Exit 24 (Interstate 90). Take I-90 East for 6 miles to the exit for I-787 North. Take I-787 North to the exit for "Rt. 7 East, Troy-Bennington". (Although not marked as such, this exit is in fact the end of I-787.)

Follow signs for Rt. 7, Hoosick Street. At the 7th traffic light (about 1 mile), turn right (south) onto So Lake Ave (note: there is a Mr. Subb on the corner of So Lake Ave and Hoosick St). Proceed on So Lake Ave to the third intersection and turn right onto Tibbits Ave. The Department of Mechanical Aerospace and Nuclear Engineering (MANE) building is located on the right hand side after the large blue water tower. There are driveways on either side of the front of the MANE building.
