the past that is the same building that DCNS used to be in, but
it has a new elevated walkway connecting it to one of the Sloan
Hey, from the phone calls and email we've been getting the recommended hotels are booked solid. Try looking at Boston area lodgings for a wider selection. Good luck on the rates.

Marriott, and Sonesta hotels in Cambridge and at several Boston
hotels, depending on the season. Visitors must request the MIT
rate when reserving a room and when registering. Bed and breakfast

The Marriott is the closest hotel to E40. From the Sonesta it is easy to pick up the Galleria / Kendall free shuttle bus and get within one block of E40. The Hyatt Regency is about a 20 minute walk away from E40.

You are at 1 Amherst Street If the above is confusing, or if I can provide further direction, please let me know; we look forward to welcoming you to MIT. David J. Hogarth MIT DCNS E40-315 1 Amherst Street voice: 617-253-1514 fax: 617-258-8736 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Boston's streets were originally cowpaths, from which the city evolved; no Charles l'Enfant to give us a rational city; and the oldest subway system in the USA started as 4 competing and incompatible private companies. Yes, do call once in Boston; I can tailor directions to you. With that preamble, I add to my prior directions to get you to Bldg. 11 Now to MIT's idiosyncracy: all of our buildings are known by #, not name. Thus, E40 (at the eastern end of the campus); bldg. 11 is just slightly west of the epicenter of the Campus, which is the major dome visible from the Charles River. The auto and subway directions are as given in my last posting. By TAXI, tell the driver you want 77 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, which is at the second traffic light after crossing the Charles River on the Harvard Bridge from Boston at Mass. Ave. Entering MIT at 77 Mass. Ave., you're at the infinite corridor, which goes the full length of MIT's central campus, parallel to the Charles River; just beyond the entrance lobby (Bldg. 7), take your first corridor left; at the end of the corridor, take the elevator to the 3rd floor; from there, E40 is a 10-minute walk due East. Now an experiment; does the following diagram help or confuse?
