Hi all. This is my first post here and I hope I'm in the right place.
I am making a trip from the western suburbs of Chicago to Long Island (Floral Park), NY. I am planning on leaving August 12th or 13th but was hoping for some advice. I'm truly just looking for the quickest and easiest route, as the less time the drive takes, the more time I have to spend with family in NY.
Any suggestions on the best times to leave (late, very early, early, etc.), the best routes to take, and even the tolls I should expect to pay would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
