    So on my way out to Mattituck ( east end if Long Island) decided to try to find the Bronx term. Found it!! I do not think it will be to bad to get into. There is a Restaurant Depot there. If the OTR guys can do it, so can we. It is in the water so bring you fishing gear

    I used to do a lot of deliveries and pick ups in Hunts Point. The entire area getting in and out is set up for trucking so it's a real easy area to maneuver in, even if you have to go around the block. Just watch u don't run over any hookers after dark.... seriously they're EVERYWHERE. They even made an HBO special about it

    Lmao... all that being said, guys are stressing it thinking they're driving in Midtown. Bronx terminal is in probably the easiest accessible area for trucks NYC has. And u might get some extra time at the GWB on the way in

    I have don my fair share of NYC. All boroughs. Should not be a big issue. That being said, leaving should be a different route than entering. Someone will miss the sign and end up in Harlem lol

    I know they're gearing up for it. We already got a section of handhelds for Bronx drivers only

    A little advice I hope helps. #1 the right onto St. Anns Street swing wide
    #2 when you make your LEFT on the Bruckner, bear to the Right... the ramp will put you back on 895. If you end up back on 895 (which it seems everyone is doing) go down to Westchester Ave make a left and a left (Bruckner Blvd) and follow it down 2 miles to Leggett Ave. It can be a little tricky if your not familiar with how NY has its one ways and center medians

    Oh, 1 other thing. Oak Point Ave looks like it comes to an end at a driveway, keep going and it's right there. There are no Duie Pyle signs visible until your on top of it. When you see signs for Jetro we're in front of them

    So what I hear, several guys have gotten tickets already. They made a right on to Legget off the inner roadway of Brunckner Blvd. Why the directions (so I am told) come in off 87 instead of 895 I have no clue

    Yes, crossing the medians... I just go over GWB to 4A and the first exit Westchester Ave and straight to Bruckner/Leggett from there. With no traffic it's faster also. The directions aren't for trucks really, you CAN BUT..
