Map & Directions

HWFC is located at 100 Watervliet Avenue (on the corner of Watervliet Ave and Watervliet Ave Extension) in Albany, New York. If you are coming from within the City of Albany, we are located about a half mile north of the intersection of Central Avenue and North Allen Street.

To reach the Co-op from Interstate 90, take exit 5. Go south toward Central Avenue but take your first left turn onto Watervliet Ave Extension. The Co-op entrance will be on your right, after the Motel 6 and opposite YNN News 9.

By bus:

CDTA bus Route #125 Clinton/Sand Creek directly services the Co-op. It runs westbound from downtown Albany via Clinton Avenue to Colonie Center via Sand Creek Road, with a bus stop in front of 85 Watervliet Avenue, near the intersection at Essex St. Directly across the street and adjacent to the entrance to our parking lot, there is a bus stop with a shelter to serve patrons on the return trip eastbound from Colonie Center and heading downtown.

The Route 138 Allen/Livingston line also features a stop very close to the Watervliet Ave. entrance, at the intersection of Third Street and Watervliet Avenue. This route travels east-west along Livingston Avenue and the crosses town north-south along Allen Street, and connects much of downtown Albany to the area surrounding St Peter’s Hospital and the west end of Whitehall Road.

For those travelling along Central Avenue, for both Route 1 Central Ave. and Route 905 BusPlus Albany – Schenectady the closest stop is North Allen Street Station, and Honest Weight is then about a half mile walk to the north along Watervliet Avenue.
