During my life as a over-the-road trucker I always used the I-84 option to bypass NYC. I have used I-95 and if it is mid day or a weekend and no major accidents to mar the trip it isn't all that bad. But my motto has always been if you don't absolutely have to go thru NYC than don't. Good luck and safe motoring.

We make the run from Quantico, VA to Mass, and the reverse of that for the last few years. Son is at Quantico, and Brother is in Central Mass.

We took some of the Interstate to get around DC, like I-495, I-270 and I-70 over to I-81.

Then I-81 to I-78, then to US-33 and US-209 (Deleware Water Gap)

US-209 will take you to I-84 on in to Hartford.

We were in a 40Ft towing.

It is 91 miles further doing this route, but less stressfull.

Happy trails.
