Visitor Information Guide
There are a limited number of free parking spaces allocated for visitors to the New York Building parking lot. Parking in any space not marked VISITOR or unmarked leaves you subject to tow. There is also limited free street parking.
Locate a call box on the wall in the lobby and use code 0005. ACE will answer and buzz you up, which means that the elevator will then let you up to the sixth floor. Once you’re on the sixth floor, ACE is all the way down the hall on the left, suite 612.
