Public Transportation and Parking

Using the subway or other forms of public transit to reach Wentworth is highly encouraged since there is an extreme lack of parking in the Fenway area in general. The main subway line stop for Wentworth is the Green Line (Green Line EMFA Stop).There is no parking officially set aside for the workshop, although the MFA parkade is located nearby and there are some local street meters depending on availability.

Local Amenities and Entertainment

A guide to local amenities and entertainment in the downtown Boston area is available here.
