What is the optimal time for driving in New York City without hitting traffic?

I live in Another Big City and inbound traffic is a horrible, infuriating, stressful ordeal (think the opening scene of Office Space) from 7:30 am to about 10:00 am, after which it pretty bearable until about 3:00 pm. I would tell out of town folks to avoid driving to the aforementioned City until 10 or 11 am, and to stay away from the tollway and highways from 2:30 pm to 6:00 pm. I'm looking for similar advice for the Big Apple. Driving from Long Island (Oceanside) to Manhattan next week. What times/routes should I avoid? Please help me, New Yorkers!
