Personally, I'd do my own route. I would prefer to stay close to the coast. I'd shuttle across the Chesepeake Bay Bridge, ride to Lewes DE and ferry across Delaware Bay, ride up NJ to Sandy Hook, take the ferry to Manhattan, use the NYC bike routes out to Long Island, ferry from Orient Point to New London, then ride from there to RI. On Long Island, plan on connecting a lot of local/county routes instead of using major roads. NY DOT has a couple of bike routes you might use.
You can make a decent route using Google Maps, select Directions and Cycling or Walking options. Go to street view to check a questionable road for shoulders. Go to satellite view to find park roads and parking lots you can cut through on your bike.
