Default Offroad tracks close to Manhattan, New York

A couple of months ago I moved with my family from Europe to New York City, and took all my rc stuff with me. I was wondering if there are any nitro offroad tracks close to Manhattan/New York City. Pretty close is important for me as it doesn't make any sense when living and working in the City to own a car, so I always have to fallback on public transport when carrying my stuff to a track.

Any suggestions are very welcome.

Dear Dynasty, thanks for your quick response! When moving from Europe I took all cars with me including 1:8 (Mugen) and 1:10 scale (Serpent) onroad cars as well as my 1:8 scale buggy (Xray). I live in downtown Manhattan (Little Italy), and sounds good if I can join you visiting some tracks.

Shall I send you a private message to exchange contact info?
