FROM NEW ENGLAND AND THE NORTH/EAST: Take the
Hutchinson River Parkway to the exit for Pelham Parkway West,or take
I-95 south to the exit for Pelham Parkway West, or take the Bronx River
Parkway to the exit for Fordham Road.
Take the IND D train to Fordham Road, or
the IRT 4 train to Fordham Road. Once out of the subway station follow
Fordham Road east, down the hill toward the Fordham campus. You should
be able to see the campus emerging on your left, at the corner of
Webster Avenue. Continue walking beyond the campus entrance. Soon you
will pass Theodore Roosevelt High School, White Castle and Petes Diner
on your right, going past Bathgate, Lorillard, Hoffman, Arthur and
Hughes Avenues. Belmont Avenue will be on the right hand side of the
street, before the Fordham Road underpass. Ciszek Hall is in the first
block of Belmont.
FROM NEW JERSEY AND THE SOUTH/WEST: Take I-80 or
I-95/NJ Turnpike to the George Washington Bridge (GWB). Cross the GWB
and take I-95 Cross-Bronx Expressway north. Take the Bronx River Parkway
north to the exit for Fordham Road.

Parkway (9A) to I-95 Cross-Bronx Expressway north. Take the Bronx River
Parkway to the exit for Fordham Road.
FROM MANHATTAN - EAST SIDE: Take the FDR East
River Drive to the Triboro Bridge. Follow the signs for the Bronx and
the Bruckner Expressway I-278 north. Stay on the Bruckner and exit at

Sprain Brook Parkway south to the Bronx River Parkway south. Exit the
Bronx River Parkway at Fordham Road.
FROM PELHAM PARKWAY AND FORDHAM ROAD: Pelham
Parkway turns into Fordham Road, which will pass between the New York
Botanical Gardens (right) and the Bronx Zoo (left). At the end of the
Gardens/Zoo, Fordham Road will fork. The main road slopes down to become
an underpass. Take the marginal road, which will slope up to the city
streets. Because of the underpass, you cannot make a left onto Belmont
Avenue from Fordham Road, so make a safe and legal U-Turn into Hughes
Avenue and head back in the opposing way and toward the underpass. Make
the right into Belmont Avenue at this point. Ciszek Hall is 2502-06
Belmont Avenue, on the left of the first block.
Note: Parts of the Bronx highway system
were built before the interstate highway system and only later
included in it, so the names of Bronx highways are not thoroughly
consistent with interstate numbers. Traveling from east to west, the
Bruckner Expressway starts as I-95 but becomes I-278. Traveling from
east to west, I-95 starts as the New England Thruway, turns into the
Bruckner, and ends up as the Cross Bronx. Some thoroughfares in the
Bronx change names along their routes for no apparent reason. Fordham
Road and Pelham Parkway are the same thoroughfare. It is Fordham Road
from its west end at the Harlem River to the Bronx River Parkway and
Pelham Parkway from the Bronx River Parkway to its east end at the
Hutchinson River. In New York State a parkway is distinct from a
highway or expressway. If you take a vehicle larger that a passenger
van onto a parkway you can be ticketed for a moving violation.
