Bounded by the Hudson River on one side and Riverside Drive on the other, the entrance to NYSPI is on Riverside Drive near 165th Street. Entrance access is possible from Riverside Drive or via an overpass that connects the NYSPI Annex on 40 Haven Avenue with our main building. The Trauma and PTSD Program is readily accessible from New Jersey (via the George Washington Bridge), from Connecticut and Northern New York, and from Long Island.


By Car

From New Jersey:

If coming east across the George Washington Bridge, please take the first exit, which should be the West Side Highway (or Henry Hudson Parkway South), which will direct you south. Then take the first exit (Riverside Drive) and go south (take a right onto R.D.). You will pass the Riverside Drive entrance to the NYSPI on your right. Patients can be dropped off there. For parking, take your first left onto 165th Street and then your first right onto Fort Washington Avenue. The parking garage is there at 165th and Fort Washington Avenue. To get to the NYSPI entrance, either retrace your route or walk up Fort Washington Avenue to 168th Street, take a left onto 168th Street, walk directly ahead and the road curves to the right. Shortly after the curve, you will see a red brick building on your left, which is the NYSPI Kolb Annex. The passage to the overpass to the main building starts from the entrance to the Annex.


From Westchester/Rockland  Counties or CT:

Take either Route 87 or the Hutchinson River Parkway south to the Cross County Parkway West. Go south on the Saw Mill River Parkway, which connects to the Henry Hudson Parkway (HHP), which then crosses the HHP bridge into Manhattan. Exit at Riverside Drive (shortly after you pass under the George Washington Bridge) and follow the directions above.


By Train, Subway or Bus

Take the A (express), C, or #1 subway to 168th Street and Broadway. Or take the M2, M3, M4, M5, or M100 bus to 168th Street. Walk west 2 blocks on 168th Street and that will bring you to the intersection of Haven Avenue and 168th Street at which point you will see the Psychiatric Institute Kolb Annex. Follow the directions above.

Trains into either Penn Station or Grand Central Terminal will allow you to connect to the subway.
