Driving Directions Toronto to Queens

Mapquest has us taking this route through the tunnel, across Manhattan and into Queens to La Quinta on Queens Blvd. We have NO idea if this is the best route. Does anyone have any comments? We are not used to city driving so whatever is easiest is best! (starts at step #24, I haven't copied the whole route)

ABSOLUTELY NOT! That route moves you through the Lincoln Tunnel which is always a traffic nightmare, crosstown Manhattan and then the Queens Midtown Tunnel. That would add at least an hour to your drive time. An hour if you're lucky!

Adjust your route you over the Tappan Zee Bridge slightly north of NYC and then to the Triboro bridge into Queens. It's about 10 miles further, but will be much, much quicker!

Hey,

Here are the complete, modified, google map directions:

1. Take 90 to I-81 South

2. Go east on NY-17 (it's okay, it's 4 lane!)

3. Go south on I-87

4. Take I-87 and follow the signs to Triboro Bridge/Queens

5. Take Triboro bridge to 287 South, aka the Brooklyn Queens Expressway

6. Follow 287 to the Queens Blvd exit. Make a right on top of the ramp and follow Queens to until you get to the La Quinta Inn.

Here is the full, modified map:
