Follow the Brighton Cambridge exit until you see signs for ALLSTON, go this way to the fourth traffic light, and then turn left. Go down this street, and the very first street on the left is FARRINGTON AVENUE. It does have a sign. Turn left onto Farrington, and we are the fifth building on the right, number 23. Our parking lot is just BEFORE the building, so don't miss it.
