Route 9W - NY/NJ

I've recently moved to NYC and rode over the GWB to Route 9W in NJ this
morning.

Does anyone know if 9W has a shoulder further north?  I rode about a 1/4
of a mile and was a bit shaken by the cars zooming past.  Instead, I
went back and rode some hills on 505.

Thoughts?

9W gets to be friendlier. If you take a left after crossing the bridge, take
the first turn left, then you go along the river road which cars don't even
tend to use. This comes out further up 9W. From there you can go up to Tappan
Zee without problems, I haven't gone further than that myself.

Riding across to Westwood from there is a nice ride.
