Gateway Center has plenty of free parking for those with business in the building. You may park in any of the designated “client parking” spots and enter the building by either of the two main entrances, at the parking lot level on the building’s east (uphill) or west sides. If you enter from the west side (near Napoli’s Pizza), you will need to follow the hallway to the other side of the building to get to the elevator or stairs. Come up to the third floor and continue all the way down the hallway; our office is the last door on the right.

directions to mg-lawfirm

From the south (Route 13)

Take NYS Route 13 North into Ithaca, past Home Depot, Wegmans and over a small bridge. Get in the right-hand lane and take the third right after the bridge, onto NYS Route 79 East (West Green Street); this is a one-way street going east. Continue on West Green Street approximately six blocks to its intersection with Cayuga Street (the Tompkins County Public Library will be on your right, and West Green Street becomes East Green Street at this point). Get into the right-hand lane and continue on East Green Street past the library and under two overpasses (the first is a parking garage, the second is Aurora Street). Turn right into the driveway immediately after the Aurora Street overpass and you will be in Gateway Center’s parking lot. If you miss that driveway, continue around the curve to the right onto East State Street, through the traffic light, and turn right into the parking lot.

From the south (Route 96B)

Take NYS Route 96B North into Ithaca, past Ithaca College, down the hill, and over the bridge above East Green Street (Route 96B becomes South Aurora Street). At the bottom of the hill, turn right onto East State Street and go approximately one block; you will see Gateway Plaza ahead of you on the right. Continue a short distance on East State Street and turn right into our parking lot.

From the north

Take NYS Route 13 South into Ithaca, past the airport, Pyramid Mall, and Stewart Park. After Route 13 divides, get in the left-hand lane and take the eighth left onto NYS Route 79 East (West Green Street). Follow West Green Street across Route 13 North and follow the remainder of the directions for “from the south (Route 13),” above.

From the west

Take NYS Routes 79, 96 or 89 into Ithaca, across one of the Cayuga Inlet bridges. Continue on Route 79 East (or, if on Routes 96 or 89, turn onto Route 79 East) across Route 13 South and Route 13 North, then follow the remainder of the directions for “from the south (Route 13),” above.

From the east

Take NYS Route 79 West into Ithaca, past Collegetown and down the hill toward the Commons. Gateway Center is on the left at the bottom of the hill, across the street from Challenge Industries (the orange building on the right). Stay toward the left of your lane and turn left into our parking lot just before Route 79 curves away to the right.
