The Gold Coast Arts Center is located in Great Neck at 113 Middle Neck Road. Our entrance is through the rear of the building in the northwest corner of the outdoor Maple Drive parking lot. Please note: you cannot enter the Arts Center from Middle Neck Road; you must use the Maple Drive parking lot entrance. If coming down Middle Neck Road, make a right onto Maple Drive (if you pass the movie theater you have gone too far). Then make a quick left into the Maple Drive parking lot and look for the blue awning!
