We are located at 505 Carroll Street between 3rd and 4th Avenues in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn.
There are two entrances to the Brooklyn Zen Center.
505 Carroll Street between 3rd and 4th Avenue: This entrance requires climbing one short set of stairs (5 steps) to the keypad. Please enter 3-0 and you will be buzzed in. The Zen Center is on the second floor, at the top of one short and one longer flight of stairs (23 steps total).
540 President Street between 3rd and 4th Avenue: This entrance has two doorways. One requires climbing a short set of stairs. The other doorway is wheelchair accessible. Both lead to an elevator, which will take you to the second floor. The Zen Center is located down a hallway with a slight incline.
The wheelchair-accessible doorway is unmarked, and cannot be opened from the outside. If you need wheelchair access, please call us at (718) 701-1083, and a greeter will let you in. We are working to mark this entrance as wheelchair accessible, and to provide access from the outside.
