We are staying in Manhattan next month at Comfort Inn Chelsea in Flatiron district.
On our last full day - Sat Aug 30, we have to go to Milford, CT and return around midnight. Next day our flight from JFK is at 600pm - so we plan to reach JFK around 300pm.
With three of us, the return train tkt from Grand Central Stn to Milford on Metro North is about $28 (on web) = $84 total. Plus we have the expense of going to JFK next day as well.
Just a thought - does it make sense for us to rent a car on Sat around 300pm in Manhattan and drive to Milford? We would be back midnight to our hotel - where do we park the car???
Next day (Sunday) - we would check out around 11am, some shopping and then basically drive to JFK and return the car by 300pm.
The car rental on Hertz works out to about $100 - is anything less possible?? This is also the labor day weekend.....would we likely face traffic anywhere - especially along I-95 to / from CT??
Suggestions welcome !
