By Car:

From your starting point: Driving Directions and Map   (Map courtesy of Yahoo! Maps)

Via Reagan Airport (DCA):
Traveling by car: Exit the airport following signs for Downtown Washington, DC. The first road you will be led onto is the GW Parkway traveling north along the Potomac river, and within a few minutes you will come to an exit for the 14th Street Bridge (also referred to as 395 North). Take the 395N exit to cross the river. While crossing the river, remain in the far left lanes, as there is a split just across the river. You'll want to take the left split. Now simply follow 14th Street about 15-20 blocks to P Street Northwest. (You'll need to negotiate one circle along the way, just after L Street. Simply remain in the left lanes as you approach the circle and you'll be guided on a short-cut through the middle of the circle.) Turn left on P Street and proceed 2 blocks to 16th Street. Proceed another half-block past a large building, 1616 P Street

From Dulles Airport (IAD):
Exit the airport heading for Downtown Washington. There is just one exit out of the airport, really, and it will put you on the "Dulles Access Road" which will whisk you into Washington allowing you to avoid the "Dulles Toll Road" which parallels it and has tolls and much more traffic. When the toll road ends (about 15 miles), pass the splits for 495 and remain on the road which will eventually merge into Interstate 66. While this is a limited access road during rush hour (2 occupants or more required per car), all traffic from the airport is authorized to use it. Follow 66 toward Washington, for approximately 10 miles. Once you cross the Potomac River the road becomes Constitution Avenue, at 23rd St. Follow that road to 14th Street, turn left, and pick up the instructions offered for traveling 14th Street from Reagan National Airport (you'll only need to travel about 13 blocks on 14th before turning onto P Street).

From BWI Airport (BWI):
Exit the airport (there's just one exit, route 195) and travel about 2 miles to the exit for 295, the Baltimore/Washington Parkway, heading south to Washington. Follow that about 25 miles until it splits, taking the New York Avenue, Downtown Washington split to the right. Remain on New York Avenue for about 5 miles. After passing an exit for I-395 to the left, there will be another split. Take the right split toward Massachusetts Avenue (labeled as such). In about 5 blocks it merges onto Mass. Ave (at 11th Street). Continue on that, proceeding through an underpass and then to a circle. Travel just one-quarter of the way around that circle, turning right onto 16th Street. Our building is at the next light. Turn left on P Street. Proceed another half-block past a large building, 1616 P Street.

Parking

Parking is always an issue in this neighborhood, but there are some garages within a few blocks and you may find street parking. Fig Leaf is having major security upgrades prior to the event, so it is highly unlikely that parking will be available in the garage in their building.

Accessibility

Wheeled access to be determined.
