We recommend that people leave as early as possible (by 3:00) as the traffic can be pretty bad. Please note that Google and Map Quest will probably take you through the city, which is not a good idea, but you can use them for the directions in Passaic. Here is one set of recommended directions (thanks Tzvi Noach) for those coming from Queens or Long Island.

Take the Triboro Bridge to the GW Bridge to NJ. Take I-80 West to Exit 61 – Elmwood Park, make a left at the light, go about 1/2 mile and make a left onto Route 46 West, then stay to the right and then to the left to get on Route 21 South to Passaic. You can take exit 11 or exit 10, depending where you’re going in Passaic.
