I work 5min from RCC, I would suggest, courtyard marriot in montvale. Its not that far plus fire and oak is in the front of the hotel.

They have the best crab cakes, their baby back ribs are to die for.

also in sufferin there's Marcello's Ristorante that have lamb chops that you can O.D. on, the meat just comes right off the bone. yummy

This is my first neaf, will be driving from WI. Does anyone know if overnight RV parking is permitted in the parking lot?

Yes, it is. Entering the campus (From College Road), turn right at the stop sign. Follow that road all the way around to the back. The west parking lot is huge and there's plenty of room. You'll be dry camping, so empty the waste tanks and top off on water and propane. Generators are OK.

This is my 5th, and I stayed there the 1st 2 years (when NEAIC was on campus).

BTW, if your GPS routes you onto Spook Rock Road, decline the invitation. Get off the NYTW (I-87) at exit 148. Stay in the center lane (the right disappears just north of the interchange). Airmont Road becomes Highview after the curve. Stay on it to the traffic light at College Road.

I also recommend picking up I-80 to I-287, avoiding NYTW tolls if you were to come in from the north. Exit 148 (Airmont Rd) is the 1st exit after the merge with I-87.

Just made my Crowne Plaza reservations! My wife and son want to go on a side trip to NYC, so we're trying to work those arrangements out now. The concierge at Crowne Plaza told us there's a train station in Suffern from which we can book a ride to Manhattan, but I was wondering if anyone else had any other recommendations. I'll be driving, but am not sure if I really want to take my car into NYC.

Yes Overnight is fine, Please park your Rv in the rear parking lot! Follow the vendor signs. You will see other R.V, and trucks. Alan

Coming from Toronto (me) and Belleville ON (Greg L. and Don T.).

At this point we have one bed empty in the two rooms we have for three nights (we go to NYC for Galleries/Museums on the Sunday and leave for home Monday am).

Any one desperate for a place to stay - let me know.....

Hi Dave. Just curious, if you don't mind my asking: How are you getting to NYC (driving, or taking a train, taxi, etc. from Suffern)? My wife, son, and I will staying in Suffern but plan to spend Sunday in NYC, and are still trying to figure out the best way to get there.

Last year there were 6 of us so we drove in my van. Parking near the Museum of Nat. History was almost $60!! Splitting it 6 ways made sense. This year we are only 3 or 4 and may take the train. We know nothing of the cost of the train, though....

Thanks, Dave! I had no idea parking would be so expensive, although the train is not exactly cheap either ($12.75 one way from Suffern Station to NYC Penn Station, and the trip takes about 1 hr. 15 min. (but at least you don't have to hunt for a place to park)).
