You can tow anywhere you are legal to drive as far as I know.

Just remember that the tool booths, especially on the parkway, can be tight. Use the rightmost lane for the most room.

exit 135 area on the parkway has low arch bridges, stay in the middle lanes for maximum clearance.

I have towed on both several times this year. Stay in center lane on northern end of GS because of low overpasses (13.2 at low ends of curve).

Yes you can tow but on the NJTP you CANNOT tow on a dolly. It has to be 4 down or an a trailer.

Curious of how you learned that it is not legal to use a dolly on the NJTP? I would like to travel to my home town in Somerset and we always used the turnpike to get there in years past. I do nto currently own a dolly but was looking to buy one in the near future. Can you tell me if there are other roads or highways that do not approve of dolly use? Thank you in advance.

It states you can tow a tow dolly.
20. Vehicles in tow:
i. With an axle or combination of axles raised off the ground and supported by cable,
chains, rope, dollies or other devices, except that Class 1 vehicles in tow with front axle
off the ground and supported by dollies with safety chains are permitted to enter and use
the Turnpike provided that the brake lights and turn signals of the tow dolly trailering
system or towed vehicle are connected to and operating in conjunction with the towing
vehicle's lights;

Clifftail is right on, thanks for the research. It also states any tow 3000 lbs or more must have brakes.

Believe page 9 allows dollied vehicles

It may state that but they would not let us on stating that because it is on a dolly you cannot back up if needed, it has been a few years but that was their stance. I have also come across a another Turn Pike on the way to the West Coast that had the same stance. they also stated if you want to you could only drive on the Turn Pike if I removed the car from the dolly.
Just my observations.

Government work at its finest. You have to wonder what makes them think some one towing four down can back up.
