- Coming from Albany, I-90, and the Thruway on I-787 NORTH, turn RIGHT at the end of the exit ramp.
- All traffic should take the same route from this point on.Blue attraction signs with the Music Hall logo mark the path described below.
- Proceed approximately 0.4 miles to a traffic light; turn right onto the Green Island Bridge. After crossing the river to Troy, turn right at the end of the bridge.
- Continue straight through one traffic light onto 3rd Street. After 3 blocks, turn right on Congress Street.
- Travel on Congress Street for 1 block, and then turn right onto 2nd Street.

The Capital Region
If you are coming across the river on Route 2, the first available turn will be at Third Street. The road passes underneath First and Second. Division Street, the westbound street one block south of Ferry, does not appear on the map but may be useful in this context.
Location of the Music Hall
The Music Hall is located on the upper floors of the First Niagara Bank Building on the corner of State and Second Streets in downtown Troy. When arriving for a concert, please use the main entrance on Second Street.
If you are coming to the Music Hall's administrative office or box office during the day, please note that those offices are next door, on the second floor of the low building between the Music Hall and E. Stewart Jones' offices. The white door labelled ADMINISTRATION is the one you need.
Parking on the street and in city garages is free on weekends and after 5 PM on weekdays. If you cannot locate an on-street parking space, city-owned parking garages are located along 3rd Street near Fulton and also at the intersection of State and River streets; refer to the map above for information about how to reach those garages.
(NB: The garage whose label is closest to the words "Hudson River" no longer exists; it was torn down as part of the demolition of the former City Hall building.)
