Today I took Ethan's car out to find bikeable roads out of the city. The route I chose by studying the New Jersey Atlas will be fine, with a few modifications, but I had trouble finding the campground where I plan to stay. It's not where Yahoo! says it is; it's several miles farther into the mountains, so depending on how I'm feeling, I may decide to stay in a hotel instead!
When I got back, after burning about $10 worth of fuel, I hopped on my bike and rode up Eagle Rock to the Essex County September 11 Memorial for some excellent views of the Manhattan skyline.
