NYC Move: I'm driving a UHaul from Brooklyn to Morningside Heights in Manhattan. What's the best route?

Alright, the big move is here. We're going from Bay Ridge to the Columbia area in Morningside Heights. What's the best route? We're driving a 14' UHaul truck (described here
). Google Maps sends us on the BQE, through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, and up the West Side Highway all the way to 92nd street. I gather trucks aren't allowed for part of the West Side Highway, so how far can I go (I'm getting conflicted information) and what should I do when I can't use the highway?
This will be around 7:30 pm on a weekday, if that makes a difference.
Many thanks, MeFi New Yorkers!
