From the West, exit from I90 on Martin Luther King (MLK). Turn left (north), and road becomes Lakeshore Blvd. Follow the road for 1 mile. From the East, exit from I90 at Eddy Road. Turn right and proceed north to Lakeshore Blvd (traffic light), and turn left. From exit to Spring Bank Lane is 1 mile. Note that there is a city bus stop immediately west of the entrance into Spring Bank Lane.
Entrance to our house is on Spring Bank Lane, a private drive off Lakeshore Boulevard. A bus stop booth is to the west (left, looking down the lane) and a fire hydrant to the right. Lakeshore Blvd makes a sharp bend at that point, intersecting on the south (eastbound) side with Burton Avenue and Garfield Lane. On Spring Bank Lane, our house is the middle one of 3 between Lakeshore Blvd and Lake Erie.
Plenty of on-street parking is available across Lakeshore Boulevard on Burton Avenue and on Garfield Lane. Except for very small groups, this is preferable to parking on Spring Bank Lane, which is quite narrow. For many events, the parking lot behind the Bratenahl Community Center is available as well.
There is a ramp built into the concrete steps leading down to the main gallery entrance. We strongly suggest that even able-bodied folks use the ramp instead of the steps! If an elevator is needed to get to the main floor, continue driving down Spring Bank Lane instead of parking on the street and turn into the driveway. Continue around to the single car garage, next to which is the back (North) entrance. That area will accommodate up to 5 cars, one behind each of the three garage doors and 2 more in the driveway. The elevator to either second (main) or third (balcony) floor is just to the left after you enter the house.
