Getting here is easy

Take the EJZ subway trains to the Parsons/Archer station, the LIRR to Jamaica Station, or any of the 10 bus lines running throughout Jamaica Avenue. A dozen well-maintained and safe parking lots are available for those who prefer to drive, including the five lots administered by Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, LAZ Parking’s centrally-located lot, and the Queens Family Court Garage (149-15 Archer Avenue).
