If one is headed to the catskill mountains from Boro Park where is the correct place to say Tefillas Haderech?
You should say Tefilas Haderech either after the Washington Bridge or even on it.
Skvere Dayan shlit”a
why? after the bridge u are back in a makom yishuv – within a parsa of yishuv no more bracha
See O:CH 110-7, and M:B 29,30. We say tefilas haderech after traveling 70 amos out of the city, and it can be said until the person is within a parsa of the place that he is planning to rest, not because there is another city along the way. The reason for this is because he is still in danger.
