We (husband and I) will be hiring a car outside Boston then travelling through MA & RI for a week. Our plan is to drive to NYC, arriving around 8pm on the evening of Monday 21 January 2014 (Martin Luther King Day). That day we will be driving from Rhode Island (after a stay with friends near Coventry).
We are booked in that evening at the Maritime in Chelsea, so I am hoping to be able to drop the car off at the Avis on West 31st Street and then catch a cab to the hotel.
I am hopeful that someone may know what time that office is open until as there is no public holiday hours posted on their website.
If possible, I would also love some information about traffic conditions in the NYC area around that time and date. Also we'd appreciate any suggestions regarding the best route from RI to NYC.
Thanking you in advance.
