Welcome to Lachlan Cranswick's Personal Homepage in Melbourne, Australia

For those who get off one bus stop too late

Some images relevant to getting from Palisades 9W, Oak Tree Road Bus stop to to Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University, Palisades, New York with minimum chance of dieing as a result - Sunday, 6th May 2001

Summary: the safer way is to go via the back streets so you don't get run over by walking up Route 9W. The following pictures show you how.

New York City bus to Lamont (Also, the adventure of travel: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)

(Note for students and Columbia University members: there is a direct bus service from Columbia University main campus to the Lamont Earth Observatory)
