You are welcome (but not required!) to bring a food or drink to share.  There will be snacks.

Kings Plaza Mall has ample parking in its garage, entered via Flatbush Ave. just south of Ave. V.  The garage costs a flat-rate of $3 for the day.  To get there via public transit, you will mostly likely need a subway / bus combination, such as the 2 train to Flatbush Ave., followed by the B41 or Q35 along Flatbush Ave. to Ave. U.

The community room is located on the ground floor of the parking garage, in the management office.  You enter via a set of glass doors, facing Flatbush Ave. between Aves. V and U.
