Mandy, if you won't fly, the drive to NYC isn't bad. We did it in about 15 hours. I-85 through NC in the middle of the night was pretty scary though. Our landing into Hartsfield was rough; the pilot came in too fast and had to brake prety hard. We heard him on the way out saying, "Well if anyone was still asleep, they're not anymore!" I love Hartsfield, it has the Babylon 5 tram to whisk you between terminals and good places to eat.
