Event Locations:

Clement’s Place: 15 Washington Street (1st floor – ask security guard for directions)

 

Express Newark: Located within the legendary Hahnes & Co. building, located at 54 Halsey Street! 

Enter the Hahnes Building though the Grand Court entrance (Halsey St.).  After a short hallway and 2 sets of double doors, you’ll enter the grand court.  There is an elevator to your left – take this to the 2nd floor (or the staircase located directly in front of you).  Once out of the elevator, step into the grand court area, and to your left is Express Newark, the Rutgers section of the building.  Enter the Rutgers reception area in the left corner & you will be directed to Room 213. (Security may ask for ID – just let them know that you are there for the reading.)

 

Paul Robeson Gallery: 350 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. If you enter from MLK, take stairs or elevator down to first floor.  If you enter from Samuels Plaza (center of campus), the gallery is on the same level, close to the cafeteria.

 

KGB Bar: 85 East 4th Street, New York City
