note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

[Please note that these pages could also have been accessed as URL http://berliner-ultrasonics.home.att.net/lim*.html,
a "vanity" URL (q.v.) that did not require the tilde (~), as was true of ALL of my old pages.}

PAGE INDEX

This LIMP Apocrypha Page (unindexed - please scroll down).


This is yet another (20 Jul 2000) page to cover additional information and photographs of this interesting old highway; see also my Automotive, Chrysler, Dudgeon (really!), Mercedes, and SS and JAGUAR car pages and other related pages.


A Motor Parkway Panel had been convened to keep the LIMP alive in situ, in minds, and in museums; it has been disbanded and all activities thereof have been assumed by the Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society.

There is also a lot of automotive material on my ORDNANCE and HISTORY pages.

Also, if you like automotive history, see the links on the Automotive page.


RoW = Right-of-Way.


I have been accused of being some kind of nut for having such an intense interest in an old highway that closed in 1938!  The original western temrinus was at the Queens (NYC)-Nassau county line, later moved westward to Rocky Hill Road (today's Springfield Boulevard at that point), and then into Flushing at Horace Harding Boulevard and 195th Street.  Four blocks of Rocky Hill Road survive in Bayside by that name and what should I accidentally discover on that ancient street but Community Service Board #11 of the New York State Office of Mental Retardation and Developmental Services at 203-06 Rocky Hill Road, Bayside, New York!

In addition, one Gregory Perrotta, d.b.a. Lexington Capital Corp. at 203-20 Rocky Hill Road, Bayside, New York, applied to engage in the business of a Mortgage Broker in 1999.

Additional personal apocrypha, both of the host and of other persons, concerning the Long Island Motor Parkway will follow here, shortly.

10 Apr 2001 - Unfortunately, the elderly gentleman whose material was to appear here balked, and left me without the reminiscences I had hoped to share.


Well, not quite an empty page; Motor Parkway apocrypha hath it that there may be paving and posts hidden away in the weeds here and there.  We now know that some artifacts remain between Stewart Avenue and the Meadowbrook Parkway, as I suspected (18 Nov 2003).

Panel Friend Art Kleiner poked around in the wooded area on the south side of Salisbury Park Drive in Levittown in mid-Nov 2003 and turned up this chunk of pavement and some broken posts:
