Location and Accessibility
Located at the heart of historic downtown Ithaca, we’re at the northwest corner of East Buffalo and North Aurora Streets. That’s just one block east of DeWitt Park.
The congregation’s office is open Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 4 PM, late August through late June. Summer hours are announced in June, and are usually one day per week.
We ask that the spaces closest to the Church (along Buffalo and Aurora Streets) be left open for our members and friends with disabilities. There are usually signs with a handicap symbol placed near these spaces on Sunday. However, there are many other curbside spaces within a block of the Church. Ithaca does not charge for parking on the weekends.
Parking Garage: The Seneca Street Parking Garage is located one-half block south of the church, adjacent to the Town Hall building (and next to the Post Office entrance on N. Tioga Street).
Parking Lot: On Sundays only, church-goers may use the Thaler Building parking lot, next to the church on the north side. That lot has space for about 30 cars.
The Town Hall parking lot, across Buffalo Street from the church building, has a limited number of available spaces on Sunday only.
At other times
Curbside: Daytime parking is available on the streets all around the church. Note that the City of Ithaca charges during weekdays. Evenings after 6:00 there is no charge. If, during the day, you are willing to walk a few blocks, there is free curbside parking several blocks north of Buffalo Street as you start to get into the residential “Fall Creek” neighborhood.
Our Google Maps link offers you door-to-door directions for driving, walking, biking, or public transit.
The closest bus stops are Cayuga @ Commons and Aurora @ Commons. The Green @ Commons and Cayuga @ Commons bus stops are about 4 or 5 blocks from the church. Check out Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit.
