I'm moving from Washington Heights (163rd street) to Brookyln on Saturday (Ft. Greene near Atlantic), and I'm picking up a UHaul truck in Park Slope--the idea being that I get the difficult to-and-from Brooklyn driving done early, and then only have to take a quick trip down 6th Avenue to drop off the truck.
I know I can't take the West Side Highway past the mid 50s, and I'm fine with taking Broadway (unless there are any other suggestions...) but what I'm most worried about is getting to and from Brooklyn. I've heard a lot of people say that certain bridges are closed to trucks, but they were also referencing strict security that was being enforced after 9-11... does anyone know which routes you can take to and from the city in a moving truck?
Also, the truck I'm getting is one size above the cargo van, so it's not too big. I'm not worried about small roads, I'm more worried about being ticketed for accidentally finding myself on an off-limits bridge, or the FDR. Suggestions? and thank you!
