Which long beach, there are like 6 of them in the country.

 

If you're talking about LBI in NJ simply take 9 to the tappan zee bridge then take 9W (9's counterpart west of the hudson) down to fort lee where you can hop on the NJ turnpike, from there you'd go to the GSPW to route 72 east to LBI. There you are!

 

To get long beach in NY simply follow 9 to 87 to 287 to i95 south to 695 and cross the throgs neck bridge to the cross island parkway to southern state parkway to ocean ave then travel on atlantic ave a short way to long beach road. Take long beach road to long beach. There you are!

 

I don't know exactly where you're starting from, but these general directions should get you there in a reasonable amount of time from my experience. Try to avoid fri-sat in the mornings and after 4 pm, sunday has high return traffic. Your best bet would be on a tuesday leaving around 9-10 am. If you need any more specific directions just ask. Leaving take the same direction, however try to leave after 7 pm or before 6 am in both cases. Westchester roads will have heavy traffic in peak commuter hours. Stop in tarrytown at the diner near the interchange with the tappan zee bridge aproaches. They have good brownies & cookies and are VERY friendly!

 

Hope that helped!B)

Funny you mention that, i saw a (NJT) bus from the train earlier, on the skyway. I was like "wow, that bus is going fast".

Oh yeah. I love when NJT #1 is rerouted the Pulaski Skyway between Jersey City and Newark. Those Novas are great on that run.

I do frequent trips to Joe's Best Burger in Flushing for lunch.

 

One time, I took a #1 bus to Newark Penn Station, picked up a large Kool Aid from this juice place there which is pretty great. Then took an NEC train to NY Penn, and then an LIRR train to Flushing. Had lunch at Joes. Took the (7) train to 42nd St. Went to PABT, took the 159 bus to Union City. Took HBLR to Hoboken for a bathroom break, and then took the next Bayonne train to 34th Street for a movie theater. Then after the movie, went to 7-11 for a slurpee and took HBLR home. Thats just one trip I did. I've done many more. Also do different trips for pizza also.
