Along with the 02 November 2004 Nassau County (Long Island, New York) ENVIRONMENTAL BOND ACT PROGRAM a dedicated fund to preserve open space, improve parkland, reduce storm water pollution and cleanup brownfields throughout the County, the County also created a set of strip photos of the RoW of the Long Island Motor Parkway (LIMP) from the Queens County line to the Suffolk County line.

These photos were cropped and overlaid such that the matching portions from the three years, 1926, 1950, and 2000,could be superimposed.  The RoW was overlain on each matching trio.  It was an unaccomplished goal of the former Motor Parkway Panel (subsumed into today's Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society) to create a massive set of overlays of the various major maps of the LIMP and the latest USGS Topograohical Maps (or, at least, the latest Hagstrom's maps).  After that lofty goal, the next goal would have been to publish the Nassau County aerial photos in booklet form.

Somehow, in all the turmoil of my move off-Island to Masachusetts and the accompanying shift of emphasis from the Panel to the Preservation Society, I lost my bearings in regard to the aerial photos - mea maxima culpa.  If I ever posted any of them, I can't find where.  Accordingly, I am doing so here and now, in (hopefully) geographical order from the Queens County line to the Suffolk County line (we are talking about some 9Mb of data here - and that's just the raw photos of NE Nassau, with no relative overlays!).

For some reason long forgotten, I pulled this excerpt of the north-eastern Nassau portion (only):

Round Swamp Road is delineated in RED - - -.

The detailed shots which follow are all ONLY from north-eastern Nassau, from the NE end of Bethpage State Park, Oxford Road to Round Swamp Road, Old Bethpage Village Restoration, and finally, the Suffolk County line.

So, here is the first of the detail series, from the Botto Bridge area in Bethpage State Park to the NE end of the Park:

Because of my own personal fascination with the mystery of how the LIMP RoW exited today's Bethpage State Park at the north-east end, I excerpted this 2000 picture:

Please do NOT ask why I didn't exerpt the pictures of western and central Nassau or, if I did, what became of them.

Not very complete but that's all she (he) wrote, folks (at least for the nonce - SB,III)

Just to orient you a bit, here is the final sketch map of eastern Nassau from the LIMP Eastern Nassau page:
