Getting here.


By train!

We’re located right at the end of Metro-North’s Harlem line, around a 2-hour ride from Grand Central.

Our Getaway Package saves you up to $20 round-trip, and $5 of your ticket price gets donated to The Wassaic Project. Here’s what to do:

  1. Go to any MTA kiosk.

  2. Find the “Getaways” tab. This’ll take a couple extra touches.

  3. Scroll all the way down to Wassaic.

  4. Buy it!

It’s available Friday–Sunday in summer, and on Saturdays in winter. Round-trip tickets from Manhattan costs $37.75 for adults. See here for a more comprehensive fare structure (long story short, it’ll be cheaper). And, yes, it works on peak trains, too!

Once you’re here, take a short walk right into town along the Harlem Valley Rail Trail or get a ride with the Taxi Man.


By car!

  1. Take I-278 East to...

  5. Furnace Bank Road!

Alternatively, just pop 37 Furnace Bank Rd, Wassaic, NY 12592 into your GPS. This is probably easiest (we’re a little tucked-away).


Parking is available at the Mills, the Lantern, and the Luther Barn. Limited street parking is available as well. Try to carpool, especially for our larger events!

We operate out of historic agricultural buildings, so many of our spaces are not accessible at this time. The ground floor of Maxon Mills has ramp access through a side entrance, and an ADA compliant bathroom accessible from outside. The Auction Ring, where we host our artist lecture series in the summer, has some seating that is accessible by ramp. Our other spaces are all up at least one set of steps. Visitors who need to move around, twitch, pace, or not make eye contact are welcome. If you have access needs not addressed here, email us and we’ll work with you to support them.
