Driving Directions

From the NORTH/NEW YORK CITY
Take the New Jersey Turnpike south to Exit 9 (New Brunswick). After the toll booths, take the first right turn onto the ramp for Route 18 north. Soon after you enter Route 18, take the left side of a fork in the road, staying in the right lane. Immediately bear right for an exit to U.S. Route 1 south/Trenton. Drive south on Route 1 for about 16 miles to the Washington Road exit, which is a traffic circle. Take the first right off the circle (between the gas stations) toward Princeton. At the end of Washington Road, turn left onto Nassau Street. At the first light, turn right onto Witherspoon Street. The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts is at the next intersection on the far left corner.

From the WEST 
Drive east on Interstate 78 into New Jersey. Exit onto southbound Interstate 287 (toward Somerville). Follow signs for Routes 202/206 south. Drive south on 202 for a short distance and then follow signs to 206 south, which will take you around a traffic circle. Go south on 206 for about 18 miles. At the YMCA/YWCA (on your left), take that left onto Paul Robeson Place. Proceed straight through the first set of lights and at the second set the Paul Robeson Center will be on your left.

From the SOUTH
Take Interstate 295 north (instead of the New Jersey Turnpike). Take Exit 67 to Route 1 north. Travel about three miles north on Route 1 to the Washington Road exit, which is a traffic circle.
