Resources and new ideas for the autistic adult community in the New York City metro area.

Directions to the Atlantic Diner

Our in-person meetings, before the COVID crisis, were held at:

Atlantic Diner
111-16 Atlantic Ave. (between 111th and 112th Street)
South Richmond Hill, NY

Hopefully we will soon be meeting there again. When we do:

It is strongly preferred that you RSVP rather than show up unannounced, so that we can know how big a table to ask for. Please RSVP via Meetup, or via the contact info here, or via my private email address if you know it. (It is preferred that you RSVP via Meetup.)

Various possible ways to get there by public transportation include:

The Atlantic Diner also has a parking lot and is convenient to get to by car too.

If you haven't met us before, ask the person at the cash register to tell you where to find the "Queens discussion group." Or, if you know me well enough to have my cell number, call me instead, if you have trouble finding us, to avoid unnecessarily bothering the diner staff.

The Atlantic Diner is a relatively uncrowded, relatively quiet diner, with relatively non-harsh lighting.

We know that meeting at a diner -- any diner -- isn't adequate for those autistic people who have severe sensory sensitivities or difficulty filtering noise. We'll seek a better venue when we are sufficiently well-established to be taken seriously by potential funding sources.
