Expect to be on the bus for 15 or 20 minutes once it starts rolling. At Burgher Ave (Shell Station on your right) you’ll be one stop away. Get off at Broadway (in front of McDonald’s). From there, you can walk 3 tenths of a mile or catch the S53 bus and go two stops.

To walk from Forest and Broadway: Standing at that bus stop in front of McDonald’s, you will be on the northeast corner of Broadway & Forest. Looking across Forest toward Santander Bank, you’ll be facing south. Walk south 3 tenths of a mile along Broadway. The Y will be on your left.

To catch the bus from from Forest and Broadway: Go to the northwest corner of that intersection (in front of Metro PCS). The Bay-Ridge-bound scheduled to depart at 9:50, 10:00, 10:10, etc. Take the S53 south along Broadway, two stops to Colonial Court (in front of the zoo). Continue southbound on foot just a few steps and you will see the Y across the street on your left.

From Brooklyn: Take the R train toward Bay Ridge. Get off at 86th Street. Catch the Port Richmond-bound S53 (southbound) on the west side of 4th Ave at 87th St. Expect to be on the bus for 20 or 25 minutes once it starts rolling. When the bus passes a cemetery at the top of a hill, you are getting close. The bus will then angle to the right from Clove Road onto Broadway. Get off at the next stop (Coughlin Ave). The zoo will be on your left. Walk north (same direction the bus had been traveling) on foot half a block to the Y, which will be on your right.

From within Staten Island: Catch any bus that intersects with the S53. See the ends of the Manhattan and/or Brooklyn directions (above) for the best stop to get off the S53, depending on which direction you’re coming from.

When you come:

You will know Meeting for Worship is in session if no one verbally greets you when you enter. That does not mean you are not welcome. You are welcome!

Meeting for Worship is not necessarily completely silent. Participants may be moved by the spirit to respectfully share vocal ministry. That includes you, even when it’s your first meeting; but please note that vocal ministry is not a sermon nor a debate, nor is it idle chatter. It’s only the concise expression of “that of God within.” It is customary for an individual to speak no more than once during a single Meeting for Worship.
