Actually, both are very doable, and your choice will likely be dependant on your destination within NYC. If you're headed downtown, any lower than the Garden, use the Holland. Otherwise, it's the Lincoln.

you can take either tunnel depending on the situation. the one you choose will certainly depend on your destination (as bill keegan already mentioned), but i'd argue that the difference in traffic at the two tunnels is just as important, if not more so.

all things being equal besides traffic, pick the tunnel which has significantly less of a delay/backup, even if the other one might be more "direct" to your ultimate destination. after all, the distance between the lincoln and holland tunnels is only 2.5 miles, which means that once you've crossed the hudson river, you're never too far from any point in midtown or lower manhattan.

just listen to the traffic reports before you head out of the house as well as during the drive so that you can make an informed decision about which tunnel to choose. there's really no way to predict when one hudson river crossing will be more backed up than the others.
