Using the map, make your way to the intersection of First Street and Canal Center Plaza, then head towards the water. Once you cross the railroad tracks, you’ll see Building 44 on your right. It’s the one with the Cafe 44 sign on the Boxwood Hedge.

Come on up to the 4th floor and follow the boxwood hedge to Cafe 44. The view is pretty amazing from up here!
