Which way from LGA to Midtown?

We leave tomorrow. Yippee...

I called to confirm our Dial7 car from LGA to Comfort Inn Midtown.

Then they asked ME which way I wanted the driver to go, -- do I want the toll road or the non toll road? I want the fastest way.

It will be about 2pm when we land.

Thanks. The person I talked to didn't seem to know which was faster.

I'd ask for the 59th st. bridge (no toll). What's your rush? You're on vacation and you get a flat rate however long it takes. Views are nice from the bridge. If you really want the fastest way, tell the driver to make the choice.

Thanks. No rush, just don't want to spend any more time in transit than necessary after a long day of travel.

PS love the hat.

Have gone for many years and that time of day, the tunnel can get you there in 20 minutes. Our daughter actually made it to the east village in 25 minutes with that route once.

Most drivers would take you through the Midtown Tunnel if you ask for the fastest way. Your arrival time matters in terms of traffic conditions. Ask the driver to help you decide.
