504 Medford Street, Somerville, MA 02145
Location of the Clubhouse/General Directions
The NESFA Clubhouse is at 504 Medford St. in the Magoun Square area of Somerville. It is between the White Sport pizza/sandwich shop and a liquor/wine shop. Get a map from MapQuest or a map from Google.
It is a little more than a block from Magoun Square, which is the intersection of Medford St. and Broadway.
It is about 1/4 mile from the Magoun Square station on the MBTA Green Line. When exiting the station, turn left and walk north on Lowell St toward Medford St. The back door of the clubhouse is accessed via the driveway at 359 Lowell St which is on the opposite side of the street from the MBTA station. You may wish to walk around to the front of the building especially in cold weather as that driveway can get icy. There are also bus routes nearby. See Public Transit for more info.
There is unlimited free on-street parking on Medford St. and Broadway after 8 pm and on Sunday (one hour limit with meters at other times). We have a shared parking lot behind the building which is entered from 359 Lowell St. Please pull all the way in and park on the NESFA building (left) side of the parking lot. Do not park to the right of the dumpster or in front of the neighbor’s door.
General car directions (click links for more detailed directions)
From the West, the easiest route is to take Rt 2 to Alewife and then head north (left) on the Alewife Brook Parkway for about a half mile. Turn right onto Broadway. Follow Broadway about a mile and a half. (Don’t take the right fork onto Holland St at Teale Sq, and do take the exit from the traffic circle at Powderhouse Sq. so as to stay on Broadway.) Take Medford St. where it forks off to the right from Broadway at Magoun Sq. and it’s just a bit over a block on the right. You can park in back by turning down Lowell and into the second driveway on the left.
From Cambridge, take Prospect St. out of Central Sq to Union Sq in Somerville. Go west out of Union Sq along Somerville Ave until you come to Central St. Turn right onto Central and go to Medford St. (the second traffic light). Turn left onto Medford and the Clubhouse is between 4 and 5 blocks on the left. If you want to park in the back parking lot, drive past the Clubhouse, turn left on Lowell St. and into the second driveway on the left. Otherwise, turn right and park in front.
From the North and East, get on Medford St. from McGrath highway (Mass 28) and follow it to Lowell St. as described above in
the From Cambridge directions.
You could also get on Broadway going west and then make a hairpin left onto Medford where they join at Magoun Square.
