also above any parade the worst times to drive in the city is during the 5 Borough Bike Tour, NYC Marathon/NYC Half Marathon (which is ran entirely inside Manhattan), and the day where all the motorcycle people do their flash mob "LETS TAKE OVER THE CITY" thing.
side note: a year before that asian family in the range rover almost got into that brouhaha on the FDR with the motorcycles, my wife and I were in the same situation on the FDR (with all the motorcycles in a flashmob) but we slowed down and went into the right lane and were near our exit for williamsburg bridge. my wife and puppy were actually wicked excited and rolled down the windows and started waiving at the motorcyclist and some even gave her high fives. It was like the disney-fied happy version of that horrific event.
