I'm planning to stay Saturday-Monday nights in the West Village. On Tuesday, my wife will pick me up by car. She'll be coming from Boston and we'll be heading to Philadelphia. But she doesn't want to come into the city and deal with traffic and driving complexities.
So the question is what might be a good pick up point, ideally close to freeways/turnpikes. I was thinking Exchange Place might work on PATH, but I don't really know what conditions are like there. Otherwise, I thought of commuter rail stations like Secaucus Junction or Metropark. I'll have a suitcase and a rucksack. I'd also like to go to someplace with reasonably frequent train service, though I know that's true of many New York area commuter rail stations.
