The Murray Hill facility of Bell Labs is located at 600 Mountain Ave, Murray Hill, NJ. Directions to the facility can be found at http://netlib.bell-labs.com/where/
Coming from Rutgers, the simplest (but by no means shortest) route is to take 287 north to 78 east (exit 44). For the adventurous, a direct route can be found using the web. You want to come in the main entrance (the multistory pyramid-like structure); visitor parking is to the left and right of the entrance.
It is possible to get to Murray Hill by train from New York: use New Jersey Transit, the Gladstone Branch of the Erie-Lackawanna line. Trains are infrequent, so check the schedule (http://www.njtransit.com/). It's about a 20 minute walk from the train station to the main entrance.
You will need a badge to get in the building and will need to be escorted while in the building. PLEASE LET US KNOW AHEAD OF TIME IF YOU ARE COMING, so we can arrange a badge for you ahead of time. (Send email to Steven Fortune, firstname.lastname@example.org; we need to know name, email, affiliation, and nationality). You can still come even if you don't let us know ahead of time, but it will take a bit longer at the entrance.
Between 10:00 am and 10:45 am there will be someone at the entrance to escort you to the room (6B230). If you arrive at a different time, call Anita Anderson on extension 4697 (i.e. 908 582 4697) or in a pinch, Steven Fortune on 908 358 8234.
