    Retreat Directions: Both driving and public transportation information can be found at this link–

    http://www.lehman.edu/about/maps-and-directions.php (scroll down past the maps for directions)

    Location of the Faculty Dining Room:

    The Faculty Dining Room is located on the 1st floor of the Music Building (see campus map). The nearest entrance is from the north of the quadrangle formed by the neo-Gothic buildings (the Old Gym and the Music Building to the south and north), the Concert Hall and Library (to the west), and the administrative buildings (to the east) with the sunken lawn in the center. When you enter the Music Building (this is the main entrance), the Faculty Dining Room is to the left of the lobby. We will have signs posted both indoors and outside to help you find your way.

    Other helpful directions:

    Walking time from the D train at Grand Concourse and Bedford Park Blvd: about 10 minutes.

    Walking time from the 4 train at Jerome Avenue and Bedford Park Blvd: about 5 minutes.

    Please see the directions at the above link for bus information.

    For those taking Metro North, the Fordham stop on the New Haven line is close to the Bx9 and Bx22 buses, which stop at Lehman (take the Bx22 for Bedford Park, not for Valentine). The Harlem line that stops at 125th Street offers a quick connection to the 4 train.
