From Columbia University
Take the 1 subway north to 225th street. As you walk down the stairs from the elevated platform, note the location of the Metro-North Marble Hill train station about one block to the west. The northbound train stops there hourly about 40 minutes after the hour during non-rush hours. Take the train north to the Ardsley-on-Hudson station and follow the directions below.
From elsewhere in Manhattan
Go to Grand Central Station (here's a subway map) or the Metro-North Harlem 125th St station located at E125th St and Park Ave. Take the Metro-North Hudson Line train northbound. During non-rush hours, this train leaves Grand Central hourly at 20 minutes after the hour. Get off at the Ardsley-on-Hudson station and follow the directions below.
@ Ardsley-on-Hudson
~10 minute walk from station to Nevis. Take the left-hand road uphill (Ardsley Avenue West). Take the first asphalt driveway on the left to enter the Nevis estate. Follow the S-curve of the road to the right around the cyclotron building: follow the road as it bends to the left. When you see the main parking lot, the research building will be on your left and the Nevis Science Center will be on your right.
