Avoiding NYC

I am planning a POST stay-at-home trip with my Arctic Wolf fiver. The second part of our trip will take us from Gettysburg to Newport, RI. I have never towed an RV through NYC traffic and my experiences with only a car have been less than enjoyable. Does anyone have suggestions as how to get from Point A (Gettysburg) to Point B (Newport, RI) without having to tow a 35 ft fiver through NYC...or stopping to drink heavily? I'm hoping to avoid going so far out of my way that I have to stay out another night.

Thanks in advance.

Take 15 north to I 83 north. When you reach I 84, take that east. That will get you around the city. I used this route to go to Rhinebeck, NY for several years. I took Rt9 north after crossing the Hudson river. Check a map to go further. You can get on I 684 east to Hartford. I went cross country to get to RI from there, just don't remember the route numbers.

Our home CG is in Gettysburg. Much easier to get to Rhinebeck from there then home in South Jersey!

Take 81 North to Interstate 84 East... Continue through NY into Ct....Take 84 to Route 691 to route 66 to Middletown Ct... Then take 9 south to I95... or you can take 691 to I 91 south to 95......A little longer that way, but no towns to go through all on interstate....

If youre avoiding NYC traffic, I would avoid the 691-66 route (although that's how I would go personally, and then go to route 2 and jog through the center of RI).

Id recommend 84-691 to 91N for a couple exits, then route 9 south. to 95 Its faster than going down 91 to 95

Thanks. This was very helpful. It could add maybe an hour onto our drive time, but it will be worth it

By taking route 84 route in New York youíre going to save a fortune on the Hudson river crossing versus farther south like the GWB.
