DIRECTIONS
CitySpace is located on Boston University's campus at 890 Commonwealth Avenue.

If you're using Google Maps, CitySpace is located right on the Boston/Brookline line. Although 890 Comm. Ave. is located on the Boston side, you may need to enter "890 Comm. Ave. Brookline," in order to keep Google from getting confused. As long as it takes you to the block between St. Paul and Amory Streets, you're headed in the right direction.
