How to get to TJ Watson Research Center

LOST? call 914 945 3000 (IBM Research Receptionist)

There are 2 ways to go (Pete Schirling prefers 1.)

    Upon leaving the hotel there is a traffic light.If you go straight across (slight right jog) and up the entry ramp on to the New York State Thruway you will almost immediately observe signs to 287 (east bound). Take the 287 exit and once again, immediately you will see sign for Saw Mill River Parkway North. Take Saw Mill River Pkway to the Taconic Pkway (signs say Albany). Exit Taconic Pkway at Route 134 and make a right turn at end of exit ramp. Entrance to Research Center is on the right about 300 meters from exit. The trip takes 20-25 minutes at 90km/h
    When leaving Hilton get onto 119. Go East and watch for small green signs to Sawmill River Parkway. Take the Saw Mill River Parkway North to Taconic State Parkway to Exit Route 134. At bottom of ramp turn right and and proceed to TJ Watson Res. Center on your right. (Just a stones throw from the ramp).
