VISIT THE POETRY ROOM

40 Main St, Suite 201
Florence, MA, 01062

Finding the room

The Poetry Room is on the 2nd floor of office building called Brick Mill Square in downtown Florence. There is an elevator if you go in the Main Entrance of the Central Building. There are also exterior stairs by the North Building that lead directly to #201.

Parking

Brick Mill Square has its own free parking lot.

Public transportation

The nearest PVTA bus stop is a few blocks away, at Florence Center and is serviced by the R44.

Important notes about accessibility

To enter the 201 space there are three carpeted steps down. There’s no way around them, and there’s no railing. There are bathrooms for us to use in the building, down a long hallway, near the elevator. They are gendered, with stalls.
