Directions to the Fling!
We'll be meeting at 12 noon on Saturday October 21st in the Oak Beach Inn parking lot
Here goes. From the Verrazano Bridge, take the Belt Parkway (no commercial tags, alternate directions to follow) until it turns into the Southern State Parkway...about 15 miles. Follow Southern State Parkway until you see the Robert Moses State Park exit (around 33 I think.) From there, look for the Ocean Parkway exit...take that about 1 mile to the Oak Beach Inn...it'll be on the left with a giant open parking lot. If you have commercial tags, you'll take the Verrazano Bridge to the BQE (Brooklyn/Queens Expressway) and follow that to 495E (Long Island Expressway.) Take the LIE to the Robert Moses State Park exit and then follow the directions above to the Oak Beach Inn.
Now some of you are probably wondering how to get to the Verrazano Bridge, aren't ya? ;-) The simplest way is to take the NJ Turnpike to the exit for 278...I believe it's 13. This will take you straight across from the armpit of NJ to the armpit of NY ;-) 278 will lead you straight to the Verrazano Bridge....from there, follow the directions above. **Now if you are coming from the extreme north, like CT or further, you can come down through NY instead of following these directions. Take 95 south to 295 south to 495 east (LIE).
If anyone finds anything incorrect about these directions...hey, I'm human and I don't live on Lawn Guyland, just shoot me an email and I'll rectify said error! ;-)
