Public Transit

The illegal (quicker) way

Middlesex Bindery is a 10 minute illegal walk from Lowell MBTA Commuter Rail station or 1/2 hour legal walk.

Take the Lowell line from North Station to Lowell (end of the line). It’s a Zone 6 ticket (currently $10.50, or check for your interzone fare).

Exit the front of the station and turn left onto Thorndike Street. Follow the sidewalk up over the overpass and down the other side (cross Appleton and Middlesex streets). You will see a sign saying “McKitterick Industrial Supply” painted on the side of a building if you’re going the right direction but you won’t get that far). At the bottom of the hill, there is a Dunkin Donuts on the left. Enter the DD parking lot and walk all the way to the back. There will be two sets of railroad tracks protected by some jersey barriers. Cross the tracks.

THIS IS ILLEGAL. THESE ARE LIVE TRACKS. CHECK BOTH DIRECTIONS BEFORE CROSSING WITH CARE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

The building on the other side of the tracks is Western Avenue Studios. You will see a sign forΒ  “Whitsett Guitars”. Cross around to the parking lot at front of the building, and enter the “A” Mill.

The legal (longer) way

Take the train, same as before and follow Thorndike Street as before. At the top of the overpass, cross the first street (Appleton St) then cross and turn left at second street of the rotary overpass onto Middlesex St.Β  Pass Clemente Park on your right then bear right to stay on Middlesex St. At the light, turn right onto School Street. Go down the hill then up the hill and turn right onto Western Ave (you will see the signs). At the end of the street is Western Avenue Studios. Follow directions above to the 3rd floor.
