Jersey to NYC: Planning your road trip

Some people live in Fords, NJ their whole lives and never visit NYC. Truth be told, you can make the trip north by train or bus and get there in a few hours, but where’s the fun in that? If you want to make your journey from Fords, NJ to NYC special, check up on your policy with Five Star Insurance Agency, get in the car and make a road trip out of it.

Plan to drive to the city, but not into the city. You’re going to spend less money renting a motel room outside of NYC and bussing or taking the train into town than you would be parking your car in NYC. We’re talking about parking spaces that run the same hourly rate as the federal minimum wage. If you have the money, do what you want, but if you’ve been saving up for this trip, park somewhere outside of town so that you don’t have to spend half your budget just putting your car somewhere while you walk around. Not to mention, you’ll spend most of your time idling in traffic without going anywhere.

Forget the tourist spots. For the best results, you’ll want a friend from NYC to give you the tour. If you don’t know any locals, check out 2nd Avenue Deli and Barney Greengrass, “The Sturgeon King,” for a great bite to eat. If all else fails, you can always visit Time Square and the Statue of Liberty.

If you live in NYC, your car insurance premiums will tend to be a little higher. Fortunately, Five Star Insurance Agency is connecting you with a New Jersey policy. Drive safe, leave the car at the hotel, and you should be fine.
