APEC is located just east of the Cross Island Parkway on Northern Blvd. in Northeast Queens. We are a one story green building with parking behind the Center.
Public Transportation: Flushing Line (7 train) to Main St.; Q12 bus to Northern Blvd. (East). APEC has a bus stop right in front of the Center. It is the first building on the right after the Cross Island Parkway. The LIRR stops at Bayside (Port Washington line), and you can walk south to Northern Blvd. and catch the Q12 bus.
APEC is dedicated to establishing awareness, understanding and appreciation of the environment and to preserving nature in an urban setting.
The building is open 7 days a week, Monday - Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and varying hours on the weekend, except for major holidays. Call ahead if coming in on a weekend. Please check the calendar for closures. Walking trails are open from dawn to dusk, year ‘round.
Parking and entrance to the building and grounds is free, but we do have a suggested donation of $5 per person. You can contribute right at the front desk if you wish to do so!
