Hi! My husband and I will be in NYC (our fav city) this weekend for my birthday. I'm trying to convince him to go to coopers beach on Saturday 7/16 for a day trip- driving and leaving at 6am then driving back late that night. Had planned to rent a car in the city and pay the $40 parking fee.
Is a 2 hour drive time that early in the day realistic? Parking available at beach? Overall good or bad idea?
