Directions to GTS

The General Theological Seminary, at 175 Ninth Avenue, New York City, occupies the full block between 9th and 10th Avenues and between West 20th and West 21st Streets in Manhattan. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south-side of 21st Street.    See map for our location.

By Subway
Nearest subway stops are:

  • for the Number 1 Train, the 23rd St. stop on Seventh Avenue (walk west on 23rd, turn left onto Ninth Avenue to 21st Street, then turn right onto 21st Street. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south (left) side of 21st Street.);
  • for the C and E Trains, the 23rd St. stop on Eighth Avenue (walk west on 23rd, turn left onto Ninth Avenue to 21st Street, then turn right onto 21st Street. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south (left) side of 21st Street.).
     

By Car

 

From the North: From the George Washington Bridge, exit onto the Henry Hudson Parkway/Westside Highway/Route 9 South to 23rd Street.  Turn left onto 23rd Street, continuing to Ninth Avenue.  Turn right onto Ninth Avenue to 21st Street, then turn right onto 21st Street. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south (left) side of 21st Street.

From the West:

 

  • From the Lincoln Tunnel, exit on 40th Street, turn right onto Ninth Avenue. At 21st Street, turn right. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south (left) side of 21st Street.
  • From the Holland Tunnel, follow uptown signs to exit on Hudson Street. Follow Hudson north for many blocks -- fifteen or more, but don't bother with counting them, just continue north on Hudson and stay on it as its name becomes 8th Avenue.  Not long after, you'll notice that the cross-streets begin to be regularly numbered (14th, 15th, 16th . . . ).  When you reach 21st Street, the last few turns you make depend on the day and time of day, as follows.  Evenings and weekends, turn left at 21st Street and go a block and a half (passing Ninth Avenue):  the entrance to the Seminary is located midblock on the south (left) side of 21st Street. Between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm during school days, don't turn onto 21st.  Continue on 8th Avenue to 23rd Street and turn left. Go one block to Ninth Avenue, turn left on Ninth and go to 21st Street, where you turn right. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south (left) side of 21st Street.

From the East: From midtown bridges & tunnels, take 2nd Avenue south to 23rd Street, turn right (west) on 23rd Street to Ninth Avenue, turn left and, at 21st Street, turn right. The entrance to the Seminary is located midway down the block on the south (left) side of 21st Street.

Parking: There is some on-street parking and many local parking lots and garages (at City prices). Two of the closest are located at 23rd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues (in the London Terrace complex), and on 27th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues.

General Stories

The Future of GTS

Students share their experience during this time of change. 

As part of our series, General Stories, we asked some students to write about the future of GTS especially as it pertains to their individual experiences.


Ian Kinman
MDiv Senior
Just the other day I read an article in The New York Times about how General was planning on selling the entire 9th Avenue campus, and moving to a new location. Of course, that article was published on January 28, 1880. It was a reminder to me that GTS has faced seemingly insurmountable problems, financial and otherwise, for its entire history, and will undoubtedly continue to do so. Nevertheless, it has survived, thrived, and grown during that entire time, adjusting to new situations and new realities.
As a student, I have the privilege of witnessing how the Seminary has been able to accomplish this wonderful feat. I have seen an astonishingly passionate and motivated group of students provide the energy and vision of what a seminary and a seminary education can be. I have witnessed a supremely dedicated faculty that pushes the boundaries of what teaching can be, while maintaining a vital historic tradition. Moreover, I have enjoyed working alongside a dedicated administration and staff whose only motivation is to keep the Seminary growing and thriving against challenging odds.
Of course, the future role our residential seminaries play in theological education involves decisions that must be made in dialogue with the entire Episcopal Church. Other aspects of seminary education will also need to be addressed, including the use of online technologies and the expansion of degrees, such as the MA,  to further allow opportunity for educating the laity in their callings and ministries.
I will be graduating this spring, hopefully continuing my academic studies of the Bible at another institution. I value my time spent here. The General Theological Seminary has given me  enormous opportunities for study and reflection.
I will leave the Close with fond memories of the wonderful times past, and with excitement for a promising future. As well, I will leave with pride in being part of a proud tradition, and with confidence that in the hands of current, and future, students, faculty, administration and staff, that proud tradition will continue forward.

Anglican Studies 

For me the title of Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestselling 2006 memoir sums up three central values of General Seminary:  Eat, Pray, and Love.  Although  GTS is best known for its chapel, liturgy, and tradition, after six short months here, I believe that the best thing we have going for us is our community.  I love that we have a free community meal on Tuesday nights, as well as coffee and bagels every morning after worship.  A seminary that eats together grows together.  I also love that there are four opportunities every day for us to gather as a community to pray for the world, the Close, and everybody and everything in between.  

The seminary that prays together stays together. And I’ll never forget after one of my first Tuesday evening Eucharist services, everybody was gathered around the outside of the chapel.  I wondered why everybody wasn’t heading to get in line for the community meal in Hoffman Hall.  Then a huge roar of applause erupted, and I turned to notice that the students were cheering for Jeff Roy, who had just preached his senior sermon during the service.  While many graduate schools are plagued by competition among the students, I realized then that GTS is blessed with students who love one another.  The seminary that loves together heals together.  I honestly trust the administration, board, and faculty to do their part to ensure that GTS has a bright future. I have a great deal of trust in and respect for our new President and Dean. But that can only happen if we continue to eat, pray, and love.
