My boyfriend and I are taking a redeye flight to the Caribbean next weekend, and are making our connection at Newark. We fly into Newark at 7:00 pm, and fly out at midnight. Given this huge five-hour layover, we’re wondering if it’s feasible to take a train into Manhattan and have dinner during those five hours.
I have done some business travel to Manhattan before and I know that some trains are reliable and some aren’t. This plan would obviously depend on there being a fast and reliable train between Newark and midtown. What do you all think? Advice? Suggestions? My very favorite restaurants are on the upper West side, but I know of a few in the TriBeCa area too.
