WE ARE USING 3 VENUES FOR OUR BAIRD E HANEY GOLD, BUT THEY ARE ALL INCREDIBLY CLOSE TO EACH OTHER AND WITHIN A 5 TO 7 MINUTE WALK. 

 

The Heights Casino: 75, Montague Street, Brooklyn NY11201 (2 courts at this venue) tel # 718 624 0810

If you are taking the subway to the Main Heights Casino building on Montague Street you can take the R train to Court street, or the 2, 3, 4 or 5 to Borough Hall. You can also take the A or C to High Street though this is closer to the Annex, but still walking distance. 

 

 

The Heights Casino ANNEX:4 courts at this venue Tel # 718 624 5388.

  The Annex is only a slow 10 min walk from the main Casino building. The official address to the building where the Annex is located is 115, Clark Street, but entrance to our courts is located at the end of Pineapple Walk (opposite Cadman Plaza Park).

Pineapple Walk is a pedestrian walkway and you cannot drive down it. If you walk from the Casino to the Annex, you need to turn left out of the Casino along Montague Street. Turn left onto Henry Street. Stay on Henry Street until you get to Pineapple Walk (which is the next street after Clark Street) and then turn right into Pineapple Walk (there is a small supermarket called 'All in One Food Mart' on the corner). The last building on the right at the end of Pineapple Walk is The Heights Casino Annex. There is a sign above the front door, but there is also currently scaffold around the pathway and entrance so it can be difficult to see the sign. 

 

Please use 'Park Plaza Restaurent' in your GPS if you are driving as the Annex is on the corner opposite this restaurant. Park Plaza, 220, Cadman Plaza West (at Pineapple Walk) Brooklyn, NY 11201. 

 

The closest subway to the Heights Casino ANNEX is Clark Street on the 2 and 3 train. You can also walk very easily from the High Street station for A and C train, or walk a little further from the Borough Hall station for the 4 and 5 train and Court Street station for the R train. 

 

 

 

Eastern Athletic Club: 43, Clark street, Brooklyn, NY 11201.

The EAC is in between the main Casino building and the Annex and a short walk from both. To walk from the Casino main building, turn left out of the Casino on Montague Street, turn directly left onto Hicks Street, then turn right onto Clark street.

To walk from the Annex to the EAC you turn left out of the annex into Pineapple Walk and then left onto Henry street and then almost directly right onto Clark Street and the EAC is down the block on the righthand side. (8 courts at this venue) Tel # 718 625 0500.

The closest subway to the EAC is Clark Street on the 2 and 3 train. You can also walk a little further from the High Street station for A and C train, or Borough Hall station for the 4 and 5 train and Court Street station for the R train.
