Drive or Take the Train; Day trip from Philadelphia to NYC

Jump to last reply

I piggybacked this question on another thread, and it sank with no answers. Please forgive me if it sounds familiar.

We'll be going into NYC from Philadelphia just for one day. At her request, we'll be taking a new Swarthmore graduate to a matinee of Wicked and out for dinner at the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Station. Amtrak tickets are currently $70 RT. With three of us, would it make sense to drive into Manhattan? We're thinking to arrive in NYC around 11 AM and leave ~ 9 PM.

I've taken the train from Boston to Phil in the past and it was a pleasant trip. With tolls, gas, parking for the day, and the hassle of driving, will we regret not paying $210 for train tickets? I'm also a bit concerned we may not be able to agree on a time and end up with even higher ticket prices.

Any suggestions?
