Believe it or not it's now been over 10 years since I crossed the Delaware Memorial Bridge to NYC area or ACY. Since working at FL
I fly to points South. Anyway, I feel driving a car in the NYC area is a pain in the ass. Parking can be pricey and daunting. And, I'm not sure about LGA
but with JFK
your ride would include the Belt Pkwy from Hell. The Belt is an interesting ride. You go through Brooklyn and Queens. But, this road is extremely heavily trafficked. The condition of that road would damage a 747 or even A 380! And this road Has no shoulders!
meaning you have nowhere to pull off if you or another car has trouble. If there is even a drop of rain, it becomes the rolling Belt Parking lot. And ingress and egress is horrid. If you have trouble keeping up with the crazy traffic you will be stressed.
I very rarely ever recommend taking the bus but, from NYC to ACY you have a pick of the litter of choices. Many are casino buses where they give you quarters so at least your ride from NYC to Atlantic City costs very little or you may be ahead by a dollar. Greyhound runs their Lucky Streak service. And I imagine getting from Atlantic City to LGA
is pretty straight forward. If you do drive and have time it's a bit out of the way but eat at Mastori's Restaurant/diner around Bordentwon, NJ
. Dix. They have a sweet cheese pastry type bread that comes with meals thats killer.
When in Atlantic City, you must take a detour off the boardwalk/casinos and eat at the White House sub shop on Arctic Avenue. For gut busting Italian food nearby (Arctic Ave. check out Angeloni's II
. Also Tony's Baltimore Grill is old Atlantic City and has pretty good pizza. Enjoy!!!
