Bathgate Avenue between Fordham Road and 191st Street
For practices at Fordham University, volunteers should meet CitySquash staff and team members at the entrance to Fordham Univesrity’s campus on Bathgate Avenue, between Fordham Road and 191st Street. From north of the Bronx and from Manhattan, the simplest way for many people to get to Fordham University is by Metro-North train, which is a five-minute walk to Fordham University. On both the weekends and weekdays, Metro-North trains from Grand Central Terminal arrive at the Fordham Road station twice an hour.
Take a left out of the main exit of the Metro-North train station, walking east on Fordham Road (away from BestBuy/Sears). Fordham University will be on your left. After walking for about two hundred yards, you will see a White Castle across the street on your right. You will be at Bathgate Avenue. Take a left at Bathgate Avenue, which leads to an entrance gate of Fordham University. Volunteers should wait in front of the gate for the CitySquash students and staff.
