New Haven to New Jersey: How to get there?
Planning a m/c ride at end of the month. Looks like I will be travelling South from Boston to Liberty Island. Thought of stopping to see Mayflower II and then spending night in New Haven, CT. The next morning (Saturday a.m.) will ride on down to see the Statue of Liberty. I get the impression there's more/better parking at Liberty State Park, NJ, as opposed to Battery Park, NY. Is this the case? If so, what's best way to go? google maps say I95 down, and then across the George Washington Bridge, which I've read is a real PIA. Is Holland Tunnel any better? Any other bridges/tunnels/route better choice? It appears to costs to go from NJ into Manhattan/NYC in the form of tolls, but supposedly free going the opposite direction- Manhattan to NJ.
I've read state hwy 15, aka Merritt Parkway is nice ride, but doesn't look like it's any quicker or more advantageous.
The end game is to get to one of the ferry locations by 10 or 11 am to get to Statue of Liberty, while leaving the bikes in a fairly secure location. I will be riding with a cousin who is somewhat paranoid about leaving his bike and gear "exposed".
