Description of the property or project being proposed:

[Abbreviations used herein:
 LIMP = Long Island Motor Parkway; RoW = Right-of-Way
 N, E, S, W = North, East, South, West (where ENE = East-Northeast)
 LIRR = Long Island Rail Road, CRR = Central Railroad of Long Island
 LILCO = Long Island Lighting Co.; LIPA = Long Island Power Authority]

The Long Island Motor Parkway, begun in 1908 and opened in 1911, is a significant historic treasure and engineering marvel, one of the world’s first, and North America’s very first, high-speed, limited-access, reinforced-concrete, landscaped, restricted-use, toll parkways.  It runs from Flushing (Fresh Meadows) in Queens, across central Nassau County, and through western Suffolk County to the western shore of Lake Ronkonkoma, a distance of some 43 miles.  The right-of-way in Queens County has been placed on the National and New York State Registers of Historic Places.  We hope to extend that listing to the entire RoW and to also list it on the Historic Architectural and Engineering Record (HAER) and on the Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) and the remanent structures on the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS); theHAER, HALS, and HABS collections are among the largest and most heavily used programs of the Library of Congress.

The intent of this nomination is to preserve the right-of-way of the Long Island Motor Parkway through central Nassau County, to prevent any further sale, deterioration, destruction, or non-recreational development of the RoW, and to convert the remanent segments to a hiking and biking trail and historical strip park.


Note: To assist in describing the property or project and the reasons for recommendation (see next page), please refer to the evaluation forms for the factors that will be considered in evaluation and selection.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 3 of 23

The Communities in which property/project is located: Nassau County from Lake Success through Manhasset Hills, Herricks, Searingtown, Albertson, Williston Park, East Williston, Mineola, Old Westbury, Carle Place, Garden City, Salisbury. East Meadow, Levittown, Bethpage, and Old Bethpage (see Description of the Property).

Most of the LIMP RoW runs along high ground, so that much of it serves a local and even Island-wide N-S watershed divide; streams running away from the RoW eventually lead to Long Island Sound or to the Great South Bay and it’s adjacencies.  By retaining the RoW as open space, we not only continue and improve the recreational aspect of its utilization but also provide additional rainwater catchment.

As one of the very few remanent open spaces with significant tree stands, shrubbery, and grassland, the LIMP RoW has served, since 1938, and continues to serve, as a major recreational area for residents living nearby and also for residents who travel distances to enjoy both its historicity and the open space.

As an historic treasure, the LIMP, when suitably monumented and placarded, will vastly improve the education of our public as to the unique heritage Long island played, and continues to play, in automotive and aviation history.  Eventually, it is expected that interpretive displays will be added to further that advantage.

The excellent hiking and jogging (and biking) afforded by this extensive open space has lent itself for three generations to healthy exercise for children, adults, and seniors.  Except for a very few gentle grades, most of thr LIMP RoW is at level and only a very few spots will require any ramping for access by the physically-challenged.

Because consideration for immediate action under the Nassau County Environmental Bond Act of 2004 requires that specific projects be defined such that action can be taken immediately to greatest advantage and to open portions for use by the summer of 2005, there are two different prioritizations involved, to PRESERVE and to PREPARE.  These can also be described by "URGENCY" and "IMMEDIACY".  The detailed explanation of these priorities follows in the further descriptions by locality.

This is a unique public facility the enhancement of which will benefit all residents of Nassau County, from local neighborhoods, villages, and all three towns, to full County access, and will draw tourists to the County as well.  The more we can develop the LIMP as major historic artifact, the more tourism it will encourage.

Most of the RoW has survived in usable form with little or no maintenance for 67 years; it is anticipated that the majority of the segments of the upgraded Motor Parkway will be very-low-maintenance areas.  A network of volunteers (the Motor Parkway Panel) already exists to form a core upon which to build to assist in such maintenance as may be required.  More elaborate facilities with greater needs can be postulated but are beyond the provenance of this nomination; however, such possibilities should always be kept in mind as opportunities to enhance utilization arise.

As a County property, maintenance has been a County responsibility all these many years and the record shows that almost no expenditures were needed at all.

The RoW traverses a wide range of populations and neighborhoods but in almost all areas it runs past or through densely populated areas or heavily used areas (such as businesses, shopping centers and malls, and even passes through two of the biggest parks in Nassau County (the County’s Eisenhower Park and and Bethpage State Park).



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 5 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

Different segments of the LIMP RoW have been used very heavily over the years, as evidenced by wear on the grass and soil; a few others are only unused because of lack of access and they should become well used as the novelty of a cross-County trail becomes known.  This is borne out by the high usage of the Greenbelt Trail and the various paths alongside the State Parkways.

Funding is expected from the Federal Healthy Hearts program and from the Transportation Improvement Program of the New York State Department of Transportation

No property acquisition is envisioned under this nomination (although long-range planning may eventually result in such on a very limited basis in the distant future).

The Long Island Motor Parkway offers Nassau County an unprecedented opportunity to enhance its historical impact, its recreational facilities, its educational advantages, and its touristic appeal at very low cost; this opportunity should not be ignored or minimized.

The Long Island Motor Parkway was originally conceived by William K(issam). Vanderbilt, Jr., and associates, and firmed up at a meeting at the Garden City Hotel in 1906.  The original intention was to build a private auto road and race course to run from the Queens County line at Lake Success to Riverhead, with turning loops at each end; this never came to pass and the final road ended at Lake Ronkonkoma instead.  Among the many investors in the venture were William K. Vanderbilt (Sr.), Henry Ford, J. P. Morgan, Isaac Merritt Singer, and even the Long Island Rail Road.  Construction commenced in 1907, both easterly and westerly, at Central Park (now Bethpage) and the section in what is now Levittown and Bethpage (from Whaleneck/Merrick Avenue to Round Swamp Road) was rushed to completion in time to be included in the course of the 1908 Vanderbilt Cup Race (portions were utilized in 1909 and 1910, as well, and the site of the grandstand is monumented at Orchid Street and Skimmer Lane in Levittown).



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 6 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

The road was substantially completed by 1911, with two major changes; the pavement was originally solid concrete and only 18' wide The concrete began cracking at the first frost and the width was quite inadequate for speeding automobiles to pass each other safely; these conditions were remedied by cutting the concrete into sections and filling the joints with tar and then adding a course of macadam over the entire roadway, and by pouring 2' wide aprons of concrete on each side (bringing the pavement width to 22' - these additions can still be seen).  In 1911, the road was lengthened westerly into Queens County to Black Stump Road (later Rocky Hill Road - today’s Springfield Boulevard) and, in 1928, again lengthened to terminate at Nassau Boulevard (later Horace Harding Boulevard - today’s Long Island Expressway south service road, just east of Fresh Meadows), at Fresh Meadow in Flushing (at today’s 195th Street), conveniently near Hillside Avenue, the direct connection with Hoffman Boulevard (today’s Queens Boulevard) and the East River ferries and the Queensborough Bridge to Manhattan.  Also in 1928, the Commack Spur was constructed just east of Commack Road northward to Jericho Turnpike; that spur is today’s Harned Road.  At various times, access was also made for I. U. Willets’s estate at Lake Success, Roosevelt Flying Field, Camp Mills, Mitchel Field, the Aviators Country Club, and other facilities.  The total length of the LIMP right-of-way (RoW) was 45 miles, which, less Harned Road, means that a swath 43 miles long extends all the way from central Queens to Lake Ronkonkoma, most of which is already in regular use for recreational hiking and biking, both formally and informally.

Among the more notable features of the LIMP were elegant Toll Lodges, two of which survive today (in East Williston and Garden City) in almost-original condition, and two (in Lake Success and Mineola) in greatly-altered condition, all in Nassau County; in addition, the General Manager’s house survives substantially original in Garden City.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 7 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

These will be described more fully in the balance of this form (which proceeds in west -to-east order).  There are several original bridges surviving in excellent condition in Queens County, across 73rd Avenue and across Bell Boulevard, Springfield Boulevard and along the RoW immediately north of Union Turnpike.  Unfortunately no bridges survived intact in Suffolk County and only two in Nassau County, one carrying the LIMP RoW under the far western end of Old Court House Road in New Hyde Park (near the southeast corner of the intersection of New Hyde Park Road and the Northern State Parkway) and the other across what was the northern end of Winding Way in the southern part of Nassau County’s Old Bethpage Village Restoration.

Barely surviving the Depression and finally forced to close on Easter Sunday (17 April) of 1938 by Robert Moses’s free, parallel Northern State Parkway, the LIMP RoW was turned over to Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk counties in lieu of payment of some $80,000 to $90,000 in back taxes.  Queens turned the road over to the New York City Department of Parks and it was reopened in July of that year as a hiking and biking trail, from the western terminus to Winchester Boulevard, which it remains to this day.  Suffolk County still operates the final easternmost 14-mile stretch as County Road 67, variously known as Motor Parkway, Vanderbilt Parkway, and Vanderbilt Motor Parkway.  Major sections of original paving still survive in Nassau County in various stages from full preservation to serious decay; it is one of the most critical purposes of this nomination to prevent any further destruction of this historic wonder and valuable open space.  Much of the LIMP RoW through Nassau County was used by the Long Island Lighting Company (LILCO) as an easement for high-tension power lines and is still in such use by LILCO’s successors, the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) and Keyspan Energy Systems.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 8 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

Unfortunately, a number of encroachments were made in Nassau County; however, the Parks & Trails New York organization has surveyed the Nassau County portion and found acceptable means of bypassing all the encroachments, meaning that a viable hiking and biking trail 43 miles long could exist with Nassau County as its central focus.

Ancillary (and adjacent in two places - in Levittown and Bethpage) to the LIMP is the RoW of the former Central Railroad of Long Island (CRR), now owned by the Long Island Rail Road, thus, in turn, by the Metropolitan Tramnsportation Authority (MTA); it is expected that a separate nomination to cover this extensive greensward will be made by other organizations.  The CRR RoW also carries LILCO/LIPA/Keyspan high-tension lines on easements.  The adjacency of these two rights of way affords alternate paths through Levittown and Bethpage and the two (or more) nominations should be coordinated in any actions taken.

For convenience of reference, the Long Island Motor Parkway can be considered as twenty-eight (28) logical separate segments in the three counties, five in Queens, fifteen in Nassau, and eight in Suffolk, namely (in west-to-east order - those in Queens and Suffolk are included for reference and appear on Attachment 1):

{Segment names and numbers noted are purely arbitrary.}

An Index Map showing the extent of each noted and prioritized segment were inserted here, along with enlargements of the western and eastern portions for ease of legibility (numbered I1-I3).

I1 - Eastern Queens, Nassau, and Western Suffolk Counties
I2 - Western Nassau
I3 - Eastern Nassau



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 9 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

[Note that there are many Stewart Avenues in Nassau County - the two that cross the LIMP RoW are the W-E one immediately S of Roosevelt Field and the N-S one that branches off South Oyster Bay Road at the N end of the Grumman plant in Bethpage, runs SSE to just W of the RoW at Central Avenue and continues S to Route 107.]

N01 - "Lake Success" - Queens County line to New Hyde Park Road; traverses north parking lot of 400-410-420 Lakeville Road, Marcus Avenue, Northern State Parkway1, Lakeville Road [passing the Great Neck Toll Lodge (incorporated into the rear of 351 Lakeville Road)], Great Neck South Schools property, and Northern State Parkway2, onto SW exit ramp at New Hyde Park Road.

[P8]
N02 - "Old Court House" - New Hyde Park Road to Shelter Rock Road; traverses the only remaining bridge OVER the LIMP in Nassau County on Old Courthouse Road; one of the most bucolic stretches of the remanent LIMP.

N03 - "Herricks" - Shelter Rock Road to Searingtown Road; skirts the S side of I. U. Willets Road immediately E of the Herricks High School driveway.

N04 - "Williston" - Searingtown Road to LIRR Oyster Bay Branch; is the S boundary of Senator John D. Caemmerer Park, traverses Williston Park mainten-ance area N of William Street, Willis Avenue, Williston Park firemen’s field.

[P2]
N05 - "Roslyn Road" - LIRR Oyster Bay Branch to Wheatley Hills Golf Club; passes original Roslyn Toll Lodge (547 Roslyn Road), adjacent to Town of North Hempstead parkland on Croyden Court, crosses Roslyn Road, along berm, and into the private Wheatley Hills Golf Club.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 10 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

N06 - "Wheatley" - Wheatley Hills Golf Club to Jericho Turnpike; crosses Hillside Avenue just W of Northern State Parkway, continues through back yards..

N07 - "Mineola" - Jericho Turnpike to LIRR Main Line; the Mineola Toll Lodge (incorporated in 264 Rudolph Road) is on the S side of Jericho Turnpike, opposite Donna Drive, a beautiful straight path long-used by local residents runs W of Bruce Terrace from just S of the Turnpike at the W end of Raff Avenue to Westbury Avenue, where the RoW is on the W side of the former Corvette’s lot and requires significant clean-up to reach the LIRR Main Line.

[P6]
N08 - "Clinton" - LIRR Main Line to SW entrance to Roosevelt Field; the E drive (Vanderbilt Drive) of the Fairhaven Apartment complex on the N side of old Country Road (also the W driveway of the office complex to its E) has a row of original LIMP fence posts.  Across Old Country Road, the roW runs through private backyards between Pell Terrace and Russell Road, crossing Clinton Road just S of Hazelhurst (strip) Park. and N of the elementary school on Stewart Avenue, at Vanderbilt Court (private road).  The berm for the Clinton Road bridge still stands on the N side of the General Manager’s office on Vanderbilt Court, with posts and railing.  The Garden city Toll Lodge, formerly on the S side of Vanderbilt Court across from the general manager’s office, was moved to avoid destruction and now serves as the headquarters for the Garden City Chamber of Commerce nearby at 7th Street opposite the AAA offices.  The RoW drops easterly off the berm N of the school playing field and crosses the N end of Raymond Court, disappearing into the debris from the reconstruction of the Roosevelt Field shopping center ring road.  This segment is also of great public interest and great beauty and should be improved as soon as possible; a barrier will have to be erected at the berm over Clinton Road and the east end must be opened to the SW entrance road into Roosevelt Field for access to Stewart Avenue as noted immediately below.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 11 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

[P5]
N09- "Meadowbrook" - SW entrance to Roosevelt Field to Meadowbrook Parkway; this is an awkward area - the section under the S ring road of Roosevelt Field is hopelessly compromised and unrecoverable.  However, it is only a block S to Stewart Avenue on a grassy verge along the W side of the access road, where one can proceed from a traffic light easterly to another traffic signal at Commercial Street and then N on the E side of Commercial Street back to the intersection of Commercial Street and South Street, thus avoiding exceedingly-dangerous traverses of Roosevelt Field traffic.  South Street is on the RoW and the N side of South Street is a wide strip of clear grassland; then the RoW proceeds easterly, as the back of commercial properties along the N side of Stewart Avenue, to the S side of the zig-zag in Meadowbrook Parkway just NW of the bridge under Stewart Avenue.  Some original paving and posts exist in this unused and little-known segment.

N10 - "Salisbury" - Meadowbrook Parkway to Newbridge Road; the short stretch of RoW between Meadowbrook Parkway and Merrick Avenue is unrecoverable but Stewart Avenue lies only a short block to the S and leads to a traffic signal at Merrick Avenue.  Across Merrick Avenue is the main entrance to Eisenhower Park, where the RoW is the divider between the Red Course (to the N) and Blue Course (to the S); park management feels it is unsafe to cross this segment (due to the danger of being hit by errant golf balls) and the trail must detour S around the Blue Course to the CRR RoW and then back N to the bend in Salisbury Park Drive.  The RoW is a grassy strip of parkland outside the Eisenhower Park fence and there is also a wide strip of parkland on the N side of Salisbury Park Drive from that point easterly to Carman Avenue, where there is a traffic signal, and then sidewalks take one to the fork with Old Westbury Road and, continuing E on Salisbury Park Drive, over Wantagh State Parkway, to a traffic signal at Newbridge Road.  There are some remanent posts along this stretch.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 12 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

[P7]
N11 - "Grandstand" - Newbridge Road to North Herrmann Avenue; the driveway on the N side of the Nassau County Police Department’s 8th Precinct House is the RoW and it continues E from there as (and through) a series of local streets on the N side of Orchid Street and Polaris Drive with several encroachments, an historic site, and two major adjacencies.  Ample access on and alongside the RoW, past several schools, playgrounds, and mini-parks, plus the availability of an alternate route on the adjacent Central RR of LI (CRR) greensward, offer easy traverse of this heavily-built-up area.  The two adjacencies are both with the CRR right-of way, a long, wide greensward across east-central Nassau County; the actual adjacencies are between Newbridge Road and Jerusalem Avenue in Levittown and between North Wantagh Avenue and Deadman’s Curve (at I-135) in Bethpage.

[P1]
N12 - "Deadman’s" - North Herrmann Avenue to Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway (I-135) at Powell’s Lane.  Deadman’s Curve has long been perhaps the most famous of all features of the LIMP.  Heavily banked for high-speed running of autos, Deadman’s Curve is a spectacular sight and an engineering marvel.

N13 - Bethpage" - Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway (I-135) at Powell’s Lane to Round Swamp Road.  Nearly all this part of the RoW is inside Bethpage State Park and is being rehabilitated by New York State.  The N end is very lovely and comes out at Jo Ann Drive and Schoolhouse Lane, runs through private properties on aptly named Motor lane, and Vanderbilt Lane, and comes out on a berm on the W side of Round Swamp Road just S of the intersection with Haypath, Bethpage, and Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Roads.

[P4]
N14 - "Battle Row" - Round Swamp Road to Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road; running entirely within Nassau County’s Battle Row Campground this accessible and bucolic segment requires the least work to be usable forthe Summer of 2005.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 13 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

[P3]
N15 - "Old Bethpage" - Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road to Suffolk County line; this segment, within the confines of Nassau County’s Old Bethpage Village Restoration, contains one of the two remanent bridges, an overpass that crossed a no-longer-extant northern part of Winding Road, that only requires certification by the County Engineer and replacement of the safety railings to be used for both hiking and biking and for old cars in special events to broaden the appeal and utilization of the Restoration property (and to generate badly-needed revenue for the Restoration ).  There already is a service gate in the S fence of OBVR for direct access to the SW end of the RoW in OBVR for special events; the S portion of OBVR that contains the LIMP RoW is quite distant from the Vilage itself and the Powell Farm and there would be no encroachment either way from such adaptive use and fencing could be erected between the two areas so that trail access could be maintained independently of the Village fee area.  Longer-range planning could include restoration and landscaping of the former OBVR dump area N of the bridge and a possible interpretive display there.

Description of the property or project being proposed:

Immediate action under the Nassau County Environmental Bond Act of 2004 requires that specific projects be defined such that action can be taken immediately to greatest advantage and to open portions for use by the summer of 2005.  As noted previously, there are two different prioritizations involved, to PRESERVE and to PREPARE.; which can also be described by "URGENCY" and "IMMEDIACY".  An URGENT priority is thus to conserve and preserve the remanent segments of the LIMP, to protect them from any further sale, destruction, or non-recreative development.  The IMMEDIATE needs are to stabilize a few segments that are being damaged by neglect and the elements.  The URGENT and the IMMEDIATE, of needs, overlap; this nomination is therefore broken into eight (8) sub-sections, one for each, in priority order, namely:

[P1]
N12 - "Deadman’s" - this segment, which includes Deadman’s Curve, perhaps the most famous of all features of the LIMP, runs the highest risk of destruction. Environmental assessment crews are drilling just across from the SW corner of the Curve (at the SE corner of the CRR RoW, between the NE corner of South Herrmann Avenue and I-135) as this nomination is being prepared.  Heavily banked for high-speed running of autos, Deadman’s Curve is a spectacular sight and an engineering marvel and should be attended to immediately.  The most critical spot is at the SE corner of North Herrmann Avenue and the RoW, where a bulldozer once tore out a section of the original pavement and erosion has undermined the SW verge of the LIMP.  The undermining must be halted and the area stabilized, the brolen paving restored, and heavy brambles at the SW end cleared.  N of the Curve, the RoW is completely clear and runs N to Central Avenue where the original berm for the bridges over Central Avenue and the Central branch of the LIRR still stands instantly E of Parma Drive on the S side of Central Avenue.  This famous feature should at least be monumented and would be a good site for an interpretive display.

Description of the property or project being proposed:

[P2]
N05 - "Roslyn Road" - a portion of this segment, adjacent to the only original Toll Lodge in excellent condition and in its original location at 547 Roslyn Road, as well as a tool shed from another lodge (being used as a garage), is under consideration for sale.  This is one of the most scenic sections of the LIMP and one of the most historic.  The Town of North Hempstead maintains a strip park between the N side of the RoW and the S side of Croyden Court and has offered to cooperate in this adjacency.  Only two physical immediacies exist; an access ramp must be built along the N side of the berm and an undermining at the SW end of Croyden Court must be stabilized; also, a barrier has to be erected at the W end over the LIRR. tracks.

[P3]
N15 - "Old Bethpage" - this segment in the S end of Nassau County’s Old Bethpage Village Restoration, heavily wooded and historic, as discussed in the "Description" above, contains one of the two remanent bridges, an overpass, that only requires certification by the County Engineer and replacement of the pipe safety railings to be suitable for trail use and for special events planned by the staff of the Restoration.  It may be possible to arrange with Suffolk County and Rason Asphalt for an opening in the E fence for access to the driveway into Rason Asphalt on the Suffolk County side of the fence to reach Bethpage-Spagnoli Road for continuance easterly to Route 110 and beyond.

[P4]
N14 - "Battle Row" - this segment, another bucolic setting, requires the least work to have it usable for the Summer of 2005; the central section is usable now and has ample parking, the short western and eastern sections have to be cleared of heavy brush, and a barrier has to erected above Round Swamp Road, Although not critical, it would be desirable to remove the barrier at the western end of the presently-cleared RoW.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 16 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

[P5]
N09- "Meadowbrook" - SW entrance to Roosevelt Field to Meadowbrook Parkway.  This area, which seems to have been closed at least since World War II (if not 1938) needs to have the fence opened at the E end of South Street and the RoW cleared all the way to Meadowbrook parkway and an opening made at the E end to permit access to the S end of Ellison Avenue at Stewart Avenue (opposite Endo Boulevard).

[P6]
N08 - "Clinton" - LIRR Main Line to SW entrance to Roosevelt Field.  Most of th4 N end of this swath seems to be in private hands but the section from Clinton Road E is well used and exceedingly scenic, passing behind the General Manager’s office, with original pavement and several posts and some twist-wire barrier remaining, and drops from the Clinton Road berm to grade rather gradually.  A barrier must be placed on the berm and one further E should be removed.  Posts to prevent automobile entry exist on bot sides of Raymond Court.  The portion E of Raymond Court needs to be cleared and access renewed to the grassy strip on the W side of the SW access road to Roosevelt Field.  Parking may be possible in the n.o.f. LILCO/LIPA parking lot between Raymond Court and the SW access road.

[P7]

N11 - "Grandstand" - Newbridge Road to North Herrmann Ave.  Most of this segment is partly encroached but several sections can be reopened and the balance is readily accessible via the parallel (and adjacent in two places) CRR greensward.  Monumenting here should note the existence of the historical markers for the Vanderbilt Cup Race grandstand at Orchid Road and Skimmer Lane.  There is severe erosion and undermining at the top of the E berm on the RoW at the Stewart Avenue in Bethpage and that edge must be restored and stabilized.

[P8]

N02 - "Old Court House" - New Hyde Park Road to Shelter Rock Road.  Thismis another of the most scnc and beautiful areas of the LIMP RoW and well used already; the bridge under the NW end of Old Court House Road needs to be examined by the County Engineer and stabilized before passage can be authorized.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 17 of 23

Description of the property or project being proposed:

The balance of the 15 segments are not considered as within the immediacy of this nomination; it is hoped that they can be considered in the coming years to make the full width of Nassau County available for hiking, jogging, and biking:

N01 - "Lake Success" - Queens County line to New Hyde Park Road
N03 - "Herricks" - Shelter Rock Road to Searingtown Road
N04 - "Williston" - Searingtown Road to LIRR Oyster Bay Branch
N06 - "Wheatley" - Wheatley Hills Golf Club to Jericho Turnpike
N07 - "Mineola" - Jericho Turnpike to LIRR Main Line
N10 - "Salisbury" - Meadowbrook Parkway to Newbridge Road
N13 - Bethpage" - Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway to Round Swamp Road

(primarily under New York State oversight).

None of the above-noted immediacies should detract from medium and long-range goals for the LIMP.  It is not at all unreasonable to project into the future the possibility of reacquiring some of the encroachments (especially those without legal basis) and even purchasing (when funds can be raised) such properties as the toll lodges and the General Manager’s Office, and even of bridging the LIRR Main Line and Oyster Bay branch again (with light-weight aluminum footbridges, though).  One could even postulate a wire-mesh safety passage on the RoW directly across Eisenhower Park between the Blue and Red Courses (with pass-throughs for golfers, carts, and maintenance vehicles).  Disposition or "unfriendly" development of remanent parcels of the LIMP RoW would permanently preclude such beneficial uses.

Note: To assist in describing the property or project and the reasons for recommendation (see next page), please refer to the evaluation forms for the factors that will be considered in evaluation and selection.

Attachment 1 to 2005 Nomination Form for the

Nassau County Environmental Bond Act Program

Because of the historical and recreational significance of the Long Island Motor Parkway to Long Island and to Nassau County, this attachment details the major features of the remanent Long Island Motor Parkway (LIMP) right-of-way (RoW) in the adjacent counties of Queens and Suffolk (in west-to-east order).

Q01 though Q05 in Queens County:

Q01 - "Western Terminus" - the final western terminus, at Nassau Boulevard [today’s Horace Harding Boulevard (the south service road of the Long Island Expressway/I-684) and 195th Street) south immediately east of 199th Street and then east to today’s Francis Lewis Boulevard just north of Union Turnpike.  The New York City Department of Parks maintains the RoW as an active hiking path from just south of the Long Island Expressway all the way to Winchester Boulevard.

Q02 - "Cunningham" -across a modern bridge over Francis Lewis Boulevard, the RoW goes through the portion of Cunningham Park just north of Union Turnpike, and continues easterly under the Clearview Expressway and over Hollis Court Boulevard (today’s Hollis Court Terrace), Bell Boulevard, Rocky Hill Road (today’s Springfield Boulevard - location of the western terminus from 1911 to 1928), and into Alley Pond Park at Cloverdale Boulevard between 77th Avenue and Kingsbury Avenue.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 19 of 23

Q03 - "Alley Pond" - the stretch of the Motor Parkway in Alley Pond Park is one of the most scenic of all; winding through giant trees and alongside a large pond and then ducking under Grand Central Parkway, Douglaston Boulevard, and the Cross Island Parkway to end at Winchester Boulevard opposite Creedmoor Psychiatric Center.  The hiking path ends at Winchester Boulevard.

Q04 - "Glen Oaks" - from Winchester Boulevard, the RoW crosses the grounds of the Queens Children’s Hospital on both sides of Commonwealth Boulevard and then continues as the south service driveway of the Queens Children’s Zoo-cum-Farm to Little Neck Parkway.  East of Little Neck Parkway,, the RoW continues as a city street, 74th Avenue, bisecting the playground in the center of the Glen Oaks housing complex, and ending at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

Q05 - "Hillside" - the RoW is incorporated into the Motor Parkway Parking Lot of the former Hillside Hospital (now the Long Island Jewish Medical Center) and continues along the northerly boundary of the medical center to the Nassau County line just southwest of the intersection of Northern State Parkway and Lakeville Road.


S01 through S08 in Suffolk County:

S01 - "Sand Pits" - from the Nassau County line at the east end of Old Bethpage Village Restoration, across a driveway in from Bethpage-Spagnoli Road, into Rason Asphalt property and then Clifford Broman & Sons/110 Sand property (with an old LIMP secondary bridge that took the RoW over a local (farm?) road; the bridge still stands as a foundation for a sand loader) and behind the Huntington Hilton Hotel at 598 Broadhollow Road, Melville, to Route 110 (Broad Hollow Road).



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 20 of 23

S02 - "Melville" - On the east side of Route 110, the RoW is accessible but runs S of Duryea Road and through a welter of LIPA facilities N of Ruland Road until it resurfaces W of Maxess Road.  On the E side of Maxess Road are a pair of abutments on LIPA property but nicely maintained and landscaped by Oxford Management Services; they carried a footbridge for school children cut off by the LIMP (this scenic area is only a very short walk from the Nassau County line).

S03 - "Wheatley" - crossing Ruland Road, the RoW then crosses Wellwood Avenue just S of a traffic light at the intersection of Baylis, Ruland, Pinelawn, Old East Neck, and Wellwood Avenues, then continues along the S side of Colonial Springs Road to the vicinity of the Post office where it crosses Colonial Springs Road and heads N on the W side of Conklin Avenue which then turns into Bagatelle Road.

S04 - "Bagatelle" - running up a long stretch of original RoW on the W side of Bagatelle Road, it crossee to the E side just S of the LIE (I-495), runs through school grounds, disappears into the LIE, reappears on the N side of the LIE at the E side of Fox Lane, crosses Half Hollow Road and becomes Vanderbilt Parkway, Suffolk County Route 67.

S05 - "Half Hollow" - a short distance E on Route 67 and there is an historoical marker on the n side in front of the Half Hollow Hills Public Library.  It then continues across Deer Park Avenue (Route 231, site of a toll lodge), and De Forest Road/Carl’s Straight Path, running just S of fatal rival Northern State Parkway (again) and reaching Commack Road.



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 21 of 23

S06 - "Commack" - on the NE corner of Commack road, the well in front of the Bonwit Inn at 1 Vanderbilt Parkway marks the site of a toll lodge.  The Méson Olé at nearby 7 Crooked Hill Road, also in Commack, is reputedly a for=mer toll lodge (moved).  The RoW then crosses over Sagtikos State Parkway and then intersects with Harned Road, which was the 1928 Commack Spur, and turns SSE on the E side of the Sagtikos until it comes to the LIE where it heads due E as Motor Parkway, past Washington Avenue (site of a toll gate), Marcus Avenue, passes Sempré Vivolo at 696 Motor Parkway in Hauppauge (supposedly a former toll lodge, moved), and comes to the multiple intersection of the LIMP, Caleb’s Path, Old Willet’s Path, and the LIE.

S07 - "Expressway" - S of the LIE, the RoW rsumes its eastward course, crossing Joshua’s Path and Wheelers Road, then jogging N across the LIE and crossing Veterans Memorial Highway (Route 454) and Blydenburgh Road in Islandia, and Nickol’s and Terry Roads and ending at Rosevale Avenue on the W shore of Lake Ronkonkoma.  Directly across Rosevale Avenue was the famed Petit Trianon Restaurant/Inn, the destination for eastbound travelers, designed by John Russell Pope, which unfortunately burned to the ground in 1957; however, immediately to the S is a rest home that was Pope’s creation for the dormitory for LIMP and restaurant workers and one can readily see the magnificence of Pope’s work.

S08 - "Ronkonkoma" - the eastern terminus of the Long Island Motor Parkway, at Rosevale Avenue on the western shore of Lake Ronkonkoma, site of the Petit Trianon Restaurant, with the original LIMP and restaurant workers’s dormitory by John Russell Pope still standing as a rest home.

[Note that a private stone residence, Chateau d'Hiver (Winter House), commissioned by Charles Gould as his estate's stone gardener's cottage and designed by John Russell Pope in 1909, still exists, fully restored, just off the LIMP a bit west of Deer Park Avenue at 495 Wolf Hill Road in Dix Hills.]



15 April 2005Long Island Motor ParkwayPage 22 of 23

Reasons for recommendation (e.g., historic preservation, wetlands, wildlife habitat, parkland, water quality improvement, brownfield clean-up, etc.)

There are two primary reasons for recommendation and prioritization, namely HISTORIC PRESERVATION and PARKLAND, to preserve a priceless and irreplaceable piece of the world’s, America’s, New York State’s, Long Island’s, and Nassau County’s technological heritage and to make it accessible to the general public as valued and useful open space for recreational and educational use.  The most immediate need is for a moratorium on any further disposition or non-recreational use of the remanent RoW and for restoration and preservation of a few segments that are in immediate danger and, coincidentally, opening them for public use by the Summer of 2005.

These recommendations and this entire nomination is consistent with the stated goal of the Motor Parkway panel, "to keep the Long Island Motor Parkway alive in situ and in minds, and in museums".  The more of the first and second and the less of the third, the better for Nassau County and its residents.

Is supplemental funding available (e.g. federal, state, private)? If so, specify source and amount:

Yes; it is expected that Federal funding from the Healthy Hearts program will be provided; administered through the Parks & Trails New York organization, as well as from the Transportation Improvement Program of the New York State Department of Transportation; the amounts are not yet known and will probably not become available in time for the immediate projects.  Also, some private donations have been offered to assist in monumenting the RoW.
