By Subway

Take the "E" train on the Green Line outbound to the Northeastern University stop on Huntington Ave. When you exit the train, turn right. Walk along Huntington until you reach a down-slope and an opening on the left. At that opening, cross over Huntington Ave and turn right. Walk about ten steps and cross over Opera Place (it will be right in front of you). Take a left on Opera Place, pass an alleyway on your right, and continue until you reach the end of the block. Turn right onto St. Stephen Street. Our building is halfway down the block on your right. You'll walk over two grates and the sidewalk slopes slightly to the left, just before you reach a set of stairs leading up to our front door.

By Car

Take the Massachusetts Ave. exit on 1-93 (Southeast Expwy.). Turn right on Massachusetts Ave. and go straight until you cross Huntington Ave. At Symphony Hall (on your left), turn left on St Stephen Street. National Braille Press is ahead on your left.


To access the NBP parking lot, drive past the Press building until the street turns left. After that, the first left is an alleyway that accesses NBP's parking lot. Watch for potholes! The parking lot is mid-way down the alley on the left. Please request a parking pass from whoever you are visiting at the Press at least a day in advance. Park in any available configuration, but don't block the alley. Walk up the street-side stairs and the NBP entrance is on the right.

The nearest parking garage is the Westland Avenue Garage. When following the driving directions above, instead of turning left onto Saint Stephen Street, turn left onto Westland Avenue (it's the same turn - a 3-way corner; for Westland, bear right after you turn). The Westland Avenue Garage is about 50 yards on the right, above Whole Foods.
