Our event venue is the Glenwood Landing American Legion Hall at 190 Glen Head Road, Glen Head, NY 11545, located on Long Island about 15 miles east of New York City.
The site is about thirty minutes by car from both Kennedy (JFK) and LaGuardia (LGA) airports.
Take your best route to the Long Island Expressway (L.I.E. or I-495). Take the L.I.E. to exit 39 (Glen Cove Rd). At Glen Cove Road, turn towards Glen Cove and proceed north for five miles. At Glen Head Road, make a sharp left and drive for a quarter of a mile. The Legion Hall will be on your right, just after the. fire department and the community center.
Rides on the LIRR train from New York City’s Penn Station take about an hour and cost $10.25 each way. (Buy your ticket at a kiosk in the station before boarding to avoid the surcharge for purchases when on board the train.)
From Penn Station, take the Huntington-bound train at 8:21 AM, 10:21 AM, or 12:21 PM, and get off twenty minutes later at Jamaica. About waiting about eight minutes, you will be able to transfer to an Oyster-Bay-bound train that arrives at Glen Head at 9:20, 11:20, or 1:20.
Note that the Glen Head stop is immediately after Greenvale. (Do not be misled by the similarly-named Glen Street or Glen Cove stops which are slightly further along the same line.)
The hall is a third of a mile from the Glen Head LIRR train station, or about a ten-minute walk. Just continue along the path of the train one block, then take a right when you reach Glen Head Road and walk for four blocks until you reach the Legion Hall.
Evening service has returning trips at 4:22 PM, 6:22 PM, 8:22 PM, and 10:22 PM with similar connections at Jamaica for trains that arrive in Penn Stations about an hour after your departure.
