Here is a map of downtown Schenectady (click here to download this JPEG file - 580 KB):

Parking map of Downtown

On this map, you can the downtown Schenectady parking areas highlighted in yellow, and marked with “(P)”.

Proctors is location (1), highlighted in red, right in the middle of the map (E4).

Your best bet is the Parking Garage, off Broadway (cell D4 on the map).

Parking in the Broadway garage is free for all Council attendees, all weekend

If you arrive before 5:00 PM on Friday, September 23rd, you will need to take a ticket when you enter the garage.  (Many commuters working in downtown Schenectady park in this garage during the week.)

If you leave before 5:00 PM, an attendant will be at the booth. Please show them your Council badge and you will not have to pay. Tell them you are attending an event at Proctors. We have been in touch with the management at LAZ Parking and we have had this arrangement for several years.

Since there are no major shows at Proctors on Council weekend this year, there should be plenty of spots in the Broadway garage on Saturday and Sunday. 

Hotel Parking

If you’re staying at the Hampton Inn, they have a private lot for their guests.  That’s the best option for you.  The Hampton Inn is also in cell E4.

If you're staying at the Parker Inn, they have a part of the Clinton Street parking lot set aside for their guests.

Shows at Proctors

There are no major shows at Proctors this weekend, so there should be plenty of spots in the Broadway garage.  There will probably be unattended parking spots in the Clinton Street lot, behind Proctors, as well.  But we cannot guarantee this.

Loading & Unloading your Gaming Stuff

If you need to unload a lot of stuff for your game (like for GMs running a miniatures game), there are access doors directly off the convention area.  Park temporarily, come to the registration desk, and we’ll help get you situated.
