Arch Street Meeting House is at 4th and Arch Streets, a block north of Market St.  We are very close to the 5th St. stop on the Market-Frankford subway, and to many bus routes; get off at 4th and Market. Walk north on 4th Street towards Arch, and you can enter through a side entrance to the enclosed garden area of the grounds. The meeting house entrance door is at the center of the north side of the building (Arch Street side). 

In a car, to get to the parking lot, head south on 4th Street, from Arch toward Market St., and turn left (slowly and carefully) up the driveway between the brick pillars half-way down the block.

Driving in the area involves negotiating several one-way streets. Arch St. runs to the west, 3rd St. runs north, and 4th St. runs south.

From Market Street and points south in center city, head north on 3rd St., turn left on Arch St., and turn left again on 4th St. Enter the parking lot 1/2 block down from Arch, on the left.

From I-676 (the Vine St. Expressway) from points north and west, many people take 6th St. south to Race St., turn left, and head east on Race to 4th; turn right, and enter the parking lot 1-1/2 blocks down 4th St., on the left.

From I-95 coming from the north, take the 2th St./Callowhill exit and continue south on 2nd St. about four blocks to Arch Street. Turn right on Arch St., and go two blocks (past the meeting house on your left) to 4th; turn left, and enter the parking lot 1/2 block down from Arch, on the left.
