CHANGE OF LOCATION TO Phelps Hospital Auditorium, Sleepy HolloW, 7:30 PM
Catching Comets (and the Instruments that Catch Them)
Steve Bellavia, Brookhaven National Labs
We have been informed by Pace that they are hosting the Westchester High School basketball playoffs on Friday night again this year and that parking will be extremely problematic, with potentially 1,000 cars seeking parking on campus. It is very likely that few spaces will be available in the lot outside of Lienhard Hall. As a result, we have decided to move the site of our WAA meeting and lecture to the Auditorium at Phelps Hospital, just 3.2 miles down Route 117 from Pace. Parking is available just outside of the Auditorium, which has excellent audiovisual equipment.
Phelps Hospital is located 5 minutes west of Pace on Route 117 and Route 9 (Broadway). Click here for an overview satellite image of the area.
To get to the Phelps Auditorium from Pace, drive west on Route 117 until you see the sign for Phelps on your left and Regeneron on your right. Keep going straight until the stop sign. Turn left and drive straight ahead about 500 feet behind the hospital, past the loading dock and Auditorium entrance to the parking lot on your right. The Auditorium entrance is up a few steps into the hospital; the Auditorium is immediately to your right upon entering the building.

And click here for a 3D view of the parking area and the Auditorium entrance.
If you are coming from Route 9, just turn onto the hospital property at the main entrance and go straight ahead, past the red brick building to the parking lot.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but we think that this is a much better solution than dealing with what is sure to be a traffic and parking nightmare at Pace.
