    I'm going here with a step deck and a mid roof. I want to do Tapen Zee down. What is the best way to here. Is 278 to Astoria Blvd to Vernon Blvd ok?

    You can come in on 278 over the tri Boro bridge take 278 to 25A west. follow 25a to 44th dr make a right. Then make a right on Vernon. It would avoid some surface streets and turning. I used to deliver bagged sand and gravel to Extech, it’s been a few years I was coming from out East on the island. I want to say the unloaded me on that 9th street, so just a heads up. Earlier the better, they used to start receiving around 5/6am and were pretty fast about it.
