Simply: I-495 (MA) to Mass Pike, into New York onto the New York State Thruway, to I-88, to NY 206, to NY 79, to destination.

Basically what NE2 is saying is that you didn't really tell us anything here.  All you did was show the route you took.  No observations.  Nothing of note.

There was button copy once (I mentioned that).
I also saw the "Home of Friendly Ice Cream" on the Mass Pike.
Also on the Mass Pike, there were beautiful mountains, and I saw a sign showing the highest point on the Mass Pike in Massachusetts.
The two rest areas we stopped in were at extremes: The first one had lots of restaurants, and the other one just had parking and bathrooms.

Given the detailed itineary (as opposed to observations), I note how "1" failed to mention stopping at (or slowing down for, if he has EZ-Pass) the Cannan Toll Booths (yes, the advance warning signs do say "booths" instead of "plaza") on the Berkshire Extension.
