From the Massachusetts Turnpike

Take 90 E to the end. Stay to the left when exiting the tunnel and take the exit for 1A North to Revere. This will become a two-way divided highway. At the first light, go right, following the sign that says “To 145 Orient Heights.” Your landmark at this intersection is a Starbucks on the opposite corner. Follow this road through the square at Orient Heights. You will have passed through one flashing light and navigated around a traffic island. Landmark is the Ruggiero Mazzarella Funeral Home on your right. At the intersection, there is a traffic light (Orient Heights T station is on the opposite corner.) Go straight through this light and into Winthrop. You will go through one traffic light, pass a sign that says “Welcome to Winthrop”, pass a Mobil station on your left and then come to another traffic light. Landmark is the Ace Hardware on your right and a small plaza with a Laundromat and a sandwich shop right on the corner. There is a sign that says 145 continues to the right. DO NOT GO RIGHT HERE! Go through one traffic light. At the next traffic light and take a right onto Hermon Street. There is sign that says “Winthrop Playmakers” and a dentist’s office on this corner. As you drive down this street, you will see the Playhouse on your right. To park, continue past the theater to the next corner and turn right (police station opposite corner and a statue of a Spanish American War hero straight ahead in the square.) You will pass Nick's Place on your left and turn into a parking lot for the EB Newton School, which is directly across the street from the Nick's Place. (Do not overshoot this—the next street will take you past a park in the center of town and you will not be able to directly access parking from there.)
