Directions to site:
From the North, take Route 13 (exit 11 on I-81 South): Follow 13 south through the town of Dryden . Turn right at the traffic light in Dryden's village center to stay on 13 south (if road signs start saying "Rt 38" you missed the turn). A few miles further on, at a traffic light, Route 366 goes off to the left. (Route 366 comes in from the right a mile or so before this; don't get confused.) Turn left onto route 366. At a flashing yellow light where 366 peels off to the left, you go straight, across the bridge, and enter Cornell University's campus; this will be Hoy Road. Turn left at the stop sign onto Campus Road and then turn right at the next stop sign onto East Avenue. Just after East Ave. crosses the gorge bridge, Risley Hall will be on your left--a turreted, red brick building.

From the Southeast: Take I-81 North to NYS Route 79 at Whitney Point. Follow 79 into Ithaca; at the first traffic light, turn right onto Stewart Avenue (the street is fashioned with red bricks), and follow from *** below

From Elmira and points West: Take Route 17 E to 13 N. Route 13 will become one-way halfway through Ithaca. Once it does so, turn right onto Buffalo Street (Byrne Dairy will be on the right corner). Stay on Buffalo Street as it goes uphill towards a flashing yellow cautionary light at Stewart Avenue. Turn left here and follow from *** below.

If you're heading towards us from the Northwest: Leave I-90 at exit 42 to take Route 96 South (Geneva exit). Carefully follow the route signs through Geneva. Stay on Route 96 into Ithaca until it crosses Route 13 North (South Meadow Street). Turn left onto Route 13, then turn right onto Buffalo Street (Byrne Dairy will be on the right corner). Stay on Buffalo Street as it goes uphill towards a flashing yellow cautionary light at Stewart Avenue. Turn left here and follow from *** below

*** Continue on Stewart Avenue across a bridge until you reach a 4-way stop (this is AFTER the intersection with two right turns). Turn right onto University Ave and proceed up the hill to the first traffic light. Turn left and cross the bridge; Risley Hall is the first building on the left--a turreted, red brick building.
