Due to off-season construction at Citi Field, Seaver Way is closed to vehicles, causing traffic detours. Free parking for the Food Drive will be available in Lot A. Lot A can be accessed by traveling to the intersection of Shea Road and Boat Basin Place, proceeding south towards Gate 8. Just before the gate, turn left and approach the guard booth where you will be directed to park in Lot A.
For fans taking public transportation, the Seaver Way sidewalk will remain open to pedestrians. Fans coming off the subway may walk through Lot G and along Seaver Way sidewalk to access the K Korner.

We hope to see you there!
