There is a hotel near my apartment which is about 10 min from Dan's. Its called Hotel Le Jolie. My parents stayed there a while again and said it wasn't bad. it is right next to the highway (BQE) which has tons of parking underneath.

Where have you been looking? I still use it, I just don't see it every day.

Also please keep in mind this drive through the city is maybe 2 hours long. Its a quick day and lunch/dinner after. So don't expect this to be some long off road excursion

Did you reserve space to eat or is it a mad scramble for seats?

I should be in Driving down from VT Very Slowly
Meeting up with John'sD90 for the night then will head into the city in the morning.
Might dip out to Long Island Dump my Load and head into the city as the truck is not as sporty with that much weight.

So i will try to make it on time

So I have to alter the route and plans.

We meet in the city at 11am.

Drive to Long Island City.

Lunch is at Casa Enrique at Noon.

Take off after lunch and drive the route around the city.
