ok everyone lets name your fav roads to go for a nice drive in the area.
some of my favs....

take the palisades north from the GWB (very scenic drive...but be careful cause theres plenty of poilce cars), get off at exit 9 to the NYS thruway and from there up to exit 16 (woodbury commons shopping mall) theres nothing but wide open road that you can really drive f-a-s-t.
