Directions to the First United Presbyterian Church, 34 Broadway, in Rensselaer.

Take the Dunn Memorial Bridge away from the State Capitol off 787, headed on 20 east, 9 south towards Rensselaer. Going across the bridge, you continue straight onto 9/20 (avoiding ramp to the right for Amtrak, Rt. 43). At the first light immediately as you come off the bridge, you make a right onto Broadway. The church is on the left hand side about half way down the block.

The church is 6/10 of a mile from the Amtrak station in Rensselaer. At the south of the station is a new parking garage with a road and walkway across the railroad tracks headed west (towards the Hudson). Take your first left, which is Broadway. Walk about six blocks or so. Cross route 9/20.

From the South. Take first Albany exit off the Thruway (exit 23). Head straight through toll plaza onto 787. Go about 3 to 4 miles. Look for 9 south /20 east (not 20 west). There will be a fork in the road. Bear left. It is the same ramp as the Empire State Plaza but do not take that ramp (right). Take bridge across
the river. Follow as above.

From the West. From the Thruway, take first Albany exit (Exit 24). Head east towards Boston. Take the 787 exit south just before the Hudson River. Go about 1.5 miles. Take 9 south, 20 east exit. Follow as above.

From Taconic. Head west on Thruway. Get over at next exit, the I-90 bypass to Albany. Go across Hudson River. On bridge, take exit for 787 south. Go about 1.5 miles, taking 9 east, 20 south exit.
