Make sure you check NJ Transit schedules, because the late trains are few and far between. Depending on where you're staying in Ocean Grove, you'll use either the Asbury Park or Bradley Beach station. The trip is about 1 3/4 hours on an spartan commuter train.
Thanks for the tips Carbro! Generally it has been oppressively hot there (like many areas in this most recent heat wave) but recently the temps have dropped considerably. Partly cloudy and 76 right now on Jersey Shore, with a high of 79. Perfect day for the outdoor wedding we are attending in a couple hours.

40% chance of thunderstorms on Monday (our NYC trip) with a high of 81 so far, so it might turn out pretty good!

Trip was great! Weather was perfect and we got a LOT of stuff checked off the itinerary. Couldn't have done it all without the tour guide. Pics later today...

Pics as promised. If anyone would like a larger size let me know.

Basically we took the ferry from NJ, went to the Top of The Rock, lunch at John's Pizza, went to Brighton Beach, Coney Island, Wall St., Ground Zero, Cathedral, Library, Central Park, Times Square, Fifth Ave, and much, much more. We packed in a lot for one day!

Default Need Help for a One-Day School Trip to NYC

I have similar questions for a school group. I have about a hundred middle-schoolers from NJ and the school would like to bring them into NYC for a one-day trip without losing any kids or having any of the teachers lose their minds. There must be companies that organize that kind of thing. Does anyone have any recommendations?
