From the West, exit from I90 at Martin Luther King Jr. Drive (MLK). There is a traffic light at the end of the exit ramp. Turn left (north) and go under I90 to a traffic light, and curve sharply onto what is now called Lakeshore Blvd. Note: 25 MPH speed limit! Follow the road for 1 mile to 9721 Lakeshore Blvd (private drive at that point is called Spring Bank Lane).
From the East, exit from I90 at Eddy Road. There is a traffic light at the end of the exit ramp. There is no turn on red! Turn right and proceed north to Lakeshore Blvd (traffic light) and turn left. Follow the road for 1 mile to 9721 Lakeshore Blvd (private drive at that point is called Spring Bank Lane).
Spring Bank Lane Landmarks. A bus stop booth is to its west (left, looking down the lane) and a fire hydrant is to the right (east). Our house is the second of 3 down Spring Bank Lane.
There is no parking on Lakeshore Blvd and Spring Bank Lane is narrow. However, Lakeshore Blvd makes a sharp bend at Spring Bank Lane at its intersection with Burton Avenue and Garfield Lane. You may park on either Burton Avenue or Garfield Lane and walk to the Blackstone Residence.
If an elevator is needed to get to the concert floor (second floor) let anyone at the entrance to Spring Bank Lane know. Drive down Spring Bank Lane instead of parking on the street and turn into our driveway. Continue around to the single car garage next to which is an entrance. The driveway will accommodate up to 5 cars, one behind each of the three garage doors and 2 more in the driveway. The elevator is just to the left after you enter the house (if the elevator is on another floor, press the call button). Pull open the glass door and enter the elevator. Close the glass door and press floor 2 (concert floor). The elevator folding door will automatically close. When you arrive at the second floor, the folding door will automatically open; then open the glass door and exit. Please close the glass door after you exit.
For those who can use stairs, please use the ramp built into the concrete steps leading down to the gallery entrance. This is safer than using the rather steep and uneven steps. Enter through either of the two glass doors and close it behind you. In the gallery there are two large coat closets and to the left is a restroom (a second restroom is above it on the concert floor). While in the gallery, enjoy the paintings of Samuel Roth, Tino Zago, and Richard Fleischman (who also created the sculpture in the rear: “Stability and Instability”). Make your way up the curved stairs to the concert floor. Following the concert, be very careful walking down the curved stairway and remember to take the ramp up to Spring Bank Lane when you exit.
