FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Boston to New York in 1984 - what route?

In 1984, I attended some meetings in the Boston area, after which several of us traveled on a charter bus to New York for a convention. I enjoyed the trip but don't remember the route taken. Google maps shows I-90 to I-84 through Connecticut as the fastest route today. I remember seeing Fall foliage during the trip and that route seems to go through some less settled areas; but I don’t know whether those roads existed 34 years ago. What do the Northeastern people think?

I think that was the route my dad took the family to Fenway Park from CT in the 60s. I'm pretty sure the interstate highways have existed since Eisenhower's day.

CO2 ... is there anything it can't do?

That sounds right -- I-90 (Mass Turnpike) and 84 were around then. The only other way would be I-93 (Southeast Expressway) to I-95, which even then, would have been a traffic nightmare. 84 and 95 merge in southern CT, so either way the last part of the trip would be the same. There most definitely would have been more foliage going on the Pike to 84.
