Directions & Parking

The ICA is located at 100 Northern Avenue on Boston’s waterfront, adjacent to Anthony’s Pier 4 restaurant. It is a short walk from downtown and easily accessible by public transportation. We are also just two blocks from the I-93 and Mass Turnpike off-ramps.

There are several paid parking lots in the area (see parking alerts and map below). There is also some on-street metered parking along Northern Avenue and Seaport Boulevard.

Parking Alerts

Beginning June 1
ICA visitors may park in the small lot to the right of the ICA (that leads to Anthony's Pier Four, 140 Northern Ave.), the lot across the street from the ICA (25 Northern Avenue), the garage beneath ONE Marina Park Drive, other nearby lots, and on-street metered parking. Due to Fan Pier construction projects, the lot directly outside the ICA (100 Northern Avenue), and the Fan Pier Parking Lot (28 Northern Avenue) will now accommodate MONTHLY parking only. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
