The Town School is located on a tree-lined cul-de-sac across the street from John Jay Park at 540 East 76th Street, overlooking the East River. The closest cross street is York Avenue, and the closest subway is the 77th Street and Lexington Avenue stop on the 6 line. If travelling by subway, be sure to also factor in about 15 minutes for the walk from the subway stop to Town. The M79 crosstown bus stops at 79th Street and York Avenue, just a short walk from Town. On-street parking in the area is limited, but there are several parking garages in the neighborhood.
