To all that had responded to the above thread,
THANKS SO MUCH!, Everything that you said was true. The parking at the pier was just as good as we had expected. And it was easy! Like I said, I was a bit nervous about going to NYC but we will definatley go back.
1.)We got to the pier at 11:00 and parked immediately. The Spirit was late in arriving that day.
2.)Excellent security at the parking area. Sniffer dogs and uniformed inspection officers for each car entering. We felt very safe leaving our brand new car there.
3.) The daily rate is $24 still. We paid $168 for the week. They make you pay in advance which means that you are not delayed when leaving.
4.) Very easy exit out to the street from the ramp. We were off the boat and in the Lincoln Tunnel within 15 minutes from our first step on the pier.
5) I will leave a seperate posting for our review of the Spirit but in a word, it was GREAT!
