2014 Directions

Getting there

Traffic Notes: The Longfellow Bridge is closed to traffic heading into Cambridge but the T is running over the Longfellow.  There is a lot of construction on Main Street by the Longfellow.  To the south, this weekend, the T is running shuttle buses on between JFK and North Quincy.  Please plan ahead and allow extra time to get there.

ProductCamp Boston 2014 takes place at the Microsoft New England Research and Development Center, located at One Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA, 02142.

Microsoft provides directions on the Microsoft NERD website (bottom of the page, on the left)

Note that many GPS systems locate One Memorial Drive on the wrong side of the road. The Microsoft building is between Memorial Drive and Main St.  Microsoft has many sites around Boston – and Cambridge.  Make sure you go to the location at One Memorial Drive.

Taking the T

One Memorial Drive is a short walk from the Kendall Square T Stop.  As you exit the T, follow Main Street toward the Charles river.  One Memorial Drive will be on your right – take the first driveway after the MIT Sloan School.

Parking

There is an underground parking lot in the Microsoft building. Parking for the day is approximately $10 per day (seriously – cheap rates apply on Saturday). To access to the parking lot, you must approach the building westbound on Memorial Drive.  The easiest approach is to take Main Street from Cambridge toward the Longfellow, and the then turn right onto Memorial Drive.  Take the first driveway, just past the building.  Bring your ticket with you and pay at the kiosk before you go back down to the garage.

DO NOT PARK IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING.

There is also on-street parking charged for at various rates. There very few free parking spaces near the building.
