Our face to face is taking place at MF/PL offices which are located in Alfredo's house. Alfredo's phone number is 347 675-0953

The address is

461 54th Street (between 4th and 5th Avenues) in Brooklyn NY

By train, you take the R train (BMT line) downtown into Brooklyn to the 53rd Street stop which leaves you on 4th Avenue. Walk half a block to 54th, make left and proceed up the block. It's a mild hill. The house is in front of the second fire pump.
