The actual event venue is: 110 Boylston Hall (FONG Auditorium), Harvard Yard, Cambridge. The number 110, refers to the room number of FONG Auditorium, in Boylston Hall.)
I know I mentioned in an email two days ago that this was the GPS address. Unbeknownst to me and many of us here, this address does not work in all GPS programs. It does in Google though. However, the real GPS address for Boylston Hall (FONG Auditorium), Harvard Yard is 1350 Mass Ave, Cambridge, MA.
But this gets you only to the Harvard Square area and not into the Yard to the Boylston Hall, which you will have to find yourself. For that, use the Harvard Link below and the Google link will get you to the Harvard Yard area.
To Get to Boylston Hall (FONG Auditorium)
No matter where you park(hopefully will be in one of the garages close by), please get to the Mass Ave side and find any of these side streets such as: Dunster St., Holyoke St., Linden St. or Plympton St. (They are all side streets, in a row-same side walk intersecting Mass Ave).
On this Mass Ave side walk that intersects with one of the streets above, look out for Dunster St. or Holyoke St., and you will see the Harvard Shop, further away a JP Licks (ice-cream place) or an Au Bon Pain on the Mass Ave side, with these side streets intersecting. When you see the Harvard Shop or JP Licks or a Panera Bread (also an Au Bon Pain near Harvard Sq.T stop), this is your guiding point. You will see the Harvard Gate right across of Mass Ave from this side walk.
