You'd probably be better off going around Manhattan, instead of taking I95 through the city.
I'd go 78->287->87 across the Tappan Zee->287, and pick up I95 north of the city.
That's just me, though. I stay away from NYC at all costs when driving.
Looks like you'll have gorgeous weather for the most part, though. Enjoy the trip!
