    Ew, they told me to go THROUGH manhattan. F that.

    Southern State Parkway to Belt Parkway to Verazanno Narrows to Staten Island Expressway to Goethels bridge to NJ Turnpike = save myself an hour of hell through Manhattan.

    Exit 9 off the NJTP = easy.

    I'm definitly there

    ACtually, the Outerbridge is you best bet, dumps you right on 440, which becomes 287, which brings you almost directly to the park.

    If anyone is going to the Outerbridge we should have the SI caravan meet up near there since I live right by it.

    I figured you would be able to find your way once you knew where in Jersey you needed to go.

    Yes definately take the outerbridge which puts you on 440/287. Exit 12 on 287 which is what you will need is probably no more than 20 mins from the outerbridge.
