Hi Jonathan!
Well, I rode from philly to boston in … wow that was 10 years ago.
My route thru that part of CT was from Bear Mountain Bridge to Meriden
area, so I’m not sure how different the route would be from NYC.  I
remember route 6 and route 202 which I used in that part of the trip,
but i’m not sure if those would help.  In general, the old US routes
are good options  — they are direct, but not highways with lots of
local color.  Sometimes they are too strip-mally to be any fun though.
 That route (NYC-Hartford) will probably be a lot of suburbia —
that’s what i’m remembering that area as.
Good luck to them!
