G Train

Take the "G" Train to 21st Street station. Leaving the station, put the BP gas station to your back & on your LEFT.

Once you are on the same side of 21st Street as the taxi gas station (and BP is still behind you), walk to first intersection (47th Rd & 21st St), cross 47th Rd and the first building you come to is Hunters Point Plaza (tan/brown building.) If you come to another intersection, you have passed the building.

E/M Trains

Take the "E" or "M" train to 23rd St/Court St station. If coming from Manhattan, be in the very LAST car of the train. If coming from Jamaica, Queens, be in the very FIRST car of the train. Coming out of the station, follow signs for the 44th Dr exit. This will put you out at the corner of 44th Dr & 21st St. Orientate yourself so that 44th Drive is to your BACK and 21st St is on your LEFT, then walk along 21st St, walk 6 blocks (passing a park on your right, a US Post Office on your right, and MoMA PS1 on your left). At the 6th block, cross Jackson Ave toward the taxi gas station, walk to the next intersection (47th Rd & 21st St), cross 47th Rd and the first building you come to is Hunters Point Plaza (tan/brown building.)
