Probably but wouldn't leave after 4:00, but then again there are Jewish community's on the way that you can stay.
Thanks

So 4 hours is worst case scenario?
Unless if there's a bad accident that shuts it down for longer. No way of knowing. Otherwise 4 hours is enough

How much time would one need to allow to get to South fallsburg on a Friday from Brooklyn?
Depends what time, if you leave before 1 pm it should be 2 1/2 hrs max, especially if you avoid the city, from then on it starts getting worse........

You can try stargelt ( not too great) in loch Sheldrake, there is boat rentals right behind the store.
Either way, the traffic will be heavy and wherever you will go will be packed.

Just avoid rush hour, any other time is usually fine.

DO NOT GO BOATING THERE TOMORROW!! You will wait hours for a boat. There is Nola e local u can go that won't be packed. I've learned from my mistakes visit your kids, go to a park and BBQ, traffic in the Catskills tomorrow is crazy!!

Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
