*Depending on the day of the week and time of the day, there may be a charge for parking.

*Please note, parking is refunded if you are parked for less than 1 hour on weekdays.

Street Parking:

Instead of turning right in the V-Lot, you may continue straight to access street parking. There are 2 options to access street parking.

  1. take a right at the fork in the road (shortly after the V-Lot) to go toward South Swan Street and Capitol Building (State Street).
  2. take a left at the fork toward South Parking. Turn right into P3 South lot, then through the tunnel on the left. The road will turn to the right and go uphill to Madison Avenue.

Getting to the Cornerstone:

In any case, The Cornerstone (formerly know as Sign of the Tree) is accessible from V-Lot, from the Empire State Plaza Concourse, and from the street.

- From the V-Lot, after you go through the second booth (to pay for entry), take a right at the end of the aisle. Continue are far as you can without going through additional gates (permit parking only). Follow signage and turn left before you get to this gate. Look for signage for "Mazzone Hospitality."
