Download PDF

Updated September 25, 2017.

Where: The Park Lane Hotel (website)


When: Monday, October 3, 2017 from 8:45am – 10:40am

Transportation: Please allow time to travel (40 minutes from City Tech); the subway is extra crowded during rush hours

Attire: Professional/Business, As a reminder here attached is the site visit dress code retrieved directly from your Openlab site

More information: Don’t forget to prepare chapter 3 in your textbook for the tour and here is a link if you like more information about the hotel (fact sheet). High Gate is the management company.



It will take approximately 40 minutes from the hotel back to the Namm Building.

My suggestion is taking the F train 6th Avenue between 56th and 57th Jay Street/Metro Tech and then walk to school.
