I drove tractor trailer in and out of the New York area for years. The one thing I would recommend is do this drive at night.

Around NYC to Long Island 2 Choices

From my earlier post, there appears to be two routes, neither of which is desirable. GWB, Throgs Necks Bridge or Verrazano Bridge, Govanus Expwy, Brooklyn Queens Expwy.

Some reports on the GWB route say the road is terrible and likewise for the Brooklyn Queens route. The only thing going for the Verrazano route is there are no tolls (GWB and Throgs Neck are $37).

Based on recent experience what would you take?

Drove the BQE in late June in a car. Total mess. More than $37 in aggravation!

Take the GW and pay the tolls.

Remember you may get away with paying a toll on the Verranzano going east, but you get hit on the way back going west.

Take the GWB and Throggs Neck Bridge! You may run into some traffic and The Cross Bronx EXPY road surface is being fixed (some of it is roughed up to prepare for paving]). The BQE is much worse!! The Verazano is no problem, but you want to avoid the BQE! I just drove the Cross Bronx with my MH and it wasn't great,but not horrible. Don''t take a route just because of the tolls. It's not worth it.

The Verrazano may not charge on the way in , but will on the way out .. Geo Wash Br on the way in but not on way out .
My vote is for the GWB and Throggs Neck . Well 'signed' and straight forward . No surprises. . EZ Pass will eliminate angst at toll booths
