Update #2: Detailed directions for Sunday Meetup
Saturday, October 3, 2009 1:11 PM
The building you want for the Meyer Auditorium in the Freer Gallery is located on the North-East corner of 12th street and Independence; you go through the center doors (facing Independence) and down one flight of steps and it's to the right. The location shown on Google Maps etc. can be a little confusing.
Another potential point of confusion is that the Smithsonian metro entrance is not quite right on google maps (this confused me the first time). You come out on the South-West corner of the 12th street/Independence Ave intersection, and have to walk diagonally to the North-East corner (not right next to the building as Google maps would have you believe).
