Traveling from Montauk to NYC on Friday. Best time to leave?

We check out of our hotel in Montauk on a Friday. When would be the best time to leave in order to hit the least amount of traffic returning to NYC?

Many thanks!

Most of the traffic goes in the other direction on a Friday. I don't think you will have a big problem.

Agree. However, at around 3 or 4 pm- 6:30 the tradesman's march (workers heading home) makes heavy traffic going west.

Leave before 2pm. You should get to NY at about 4:30pm. Any time after 5pm, you will start to encounter long island commuter traffic (i.e. people who live and work on long island), or LI people who are heading into NY for dinner.
