for a relaxing trip home try the Cross Sound car ferry. (New London, CT - Orient Point, N)
How does the ferry work? Do you need a reservation or just show up and take the next one?

Nothing set in stone yet, tentative plan so far leave NY in the morning and then leave RI next afternoon.

I never made a reservation the 3 times I took it, (high season- july/august)  never had to wait for the next one

Rent a scooter when you're there! Not worth driving a car and they're fun!

Excellent idea!
