Friday Night Dinner, Lady Windridge Yacht
The Lady Windridge Yacht will be docked at the Chelsea Piers, on Pier 59 (by the West Side Highway, between 17th & 19th St). You will need to arrive at 7.00pm. The best options to get there from the University are:
Taxi – You can hail a cab, and if traffic is not bad, you should be there in 15-20 minutes. If you arrive by cab, tell them to enter the Pier by 24th St, and drive you down to Pier 59.
Walk – it is about a 30 min walk from the University to Pier 59. You will have to cross over the busy West Side Highway to get to the Pier Entrance (which is in line with 18th St).
Subway – there are no subway stops close by to the West Side Highway. The closest would be 14th St & 8th Ave (A,C,E lines) and from there is it approximately a 15 minute walk.
The Lady Windridge will be on the North Side of the Golf Range.
