Visiting Sam Wang's laboratory at Princeton University
Service from New York City, Newark Airport, and Trenton are available via New Jersey Transit. The Northeast Corridor line goes to Princeton Junction, where a connecting train across the platform (the Dinky) goes to Princeton. To include the Dinky in your fare, make sure your ticket ends at Princeton, not Princeton Junction. Alternately, you can take a taxi to Princeton. A common destination is the Nassau Inn, which is in the middle of town. Every driver knows where it is. [Northeast Corridor timetable (PDF)]
Driving to Princeton:
The general way to get to us is to come on Route 1 and get off at Harrison Road or at Washington Road, then head west. For detailed robo-directions go here.
Parking at Princeton: First, download this campus map (PDF). Ignore the visitor access information indicated in orange. Exit Route 1 at Harrison Road and go west. After about 1 mile, turn left on Western Way. If you approach Princeton via Washington Road (more scenic), until spring 2007 you cannot turn onto Western Way. You must turn right before (Faculty Road) or after (Prospect Avenue), then double back. Park on Western Way, across from the stadium, near Lots 4 and 25 on the map above. This puts you near Guyot Hall/Moffett Lab. Look for street parking labeled "For Ferris Thompson residents and their guests." If we know you are coming, it will be sufficient to put a note on your dash saying you are visiting resident Sam Wang. Backup option: in Lot #20 just downhill (south) of the Genomics Institute (Carl Icahn Laboratory). To come to Icahn directly, get off Route 1 at Washington Road, come up, and turn left at the blinking yellow light, where you will be able to see Icahn on your left. Nearest the building are a few visitor spaces. The laboratory is in Moffett Lab (rooms 223, 224; soon room 125) on Washington Road, at the intersection with Ivy Lane/Western Way. Sam's office is down the hall from the second floor lab, in Guyot 7. Campus maps are available here.
