Admission is FREE but we do literally pass the hat for contributions.

If you are driving, there is plenty of free street parking. If you are coming by subway and bus, take the Q44 or Q20 bus to Parsons Blvd. & 20th Avenue, which will leave you two blocks away. Taking the 7 subway to Main Street is closer to the location than taking the subway to Jamaica.
