Least inconvenient way to get into NYC if a car has to be parked somewhere
September 27, 2012 8:13 AM Subscribe
A friend and I are heading into NYC next weekend. We are coming from Montreal and driving across the border. However, after that, we haven't decided the best way to get into the city. Should we drive to Albany and take a bus from there? (Is there long term parking in Albany?) Should we drive into a suburb and take a train in? Should we drive into the city and find a lot? (I'd probably prefer to do one of the first two unless there is some reason to do the third.)

The biggest problem with the Albany option is that, if the border is busy (probable: long weekend) or if we hit rush hour traffic, we can miss the bus. We won't have much luggage, we have no objections to the subway. I prefer not to take a Chinatown bus because all the reviews say it smells like toilet.
