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.}

LONG ISLAND MOTOR PARKWAY PAGE INDEX

The Sequential Index, which follows, in more-or-less numerical page order, and a

Geographical Index, running eastward from the westernmost terminus in Queens County, through Nassau County, into western Suffolk County, and out to the eastern terminus at Lake Ronkonkoma.

Index to Matters Related to the Long Island Motor Parkway (not the LIMP itself).

I am working on a way to restructure my entire Motor Parkway coverage (following the history portion) with pictures and text in logical geographical West-to-East order as much as possible, from 193/199th Street at Nassau Boulevard (Horace Harding Boulevard/LIE) in Flushing (Fresh Meadows) out to Rosedale Avenue and the Petit Trianon at Lake Ronkonkoma.  As these pages overload and new ones are created and the files balanced by shifting data, the sequence has become far too jumbled and, thus, confusing, in spite of diligent cross-indexing.

Further, because of the extensive cross-indexing (linking) on these pages, I am adding a marker (@) to each page to indicate that it has been restored.   new.gif (17 Dec 2012)

(moved from LIMP Page 0 - 11 Nov 00)

Howard Kroplick's fantastic and massive LIMP blog, now THE premier LIMP site!   new (26 Jul 2011)

Steve Anderson has an excellent Long Island (Vanderbilt) Motor Parkway page, with more photos and links, on his NYC Area Roads, Crossings, and Exits site, where you will also find a rough map and more quotations from NEWSDAY's Sylvia Adcock and info on, and links to, Web Rings (not my thing) for East Coast Roads, Interstate Highways, New York City, and Long Island.

Steve's site led me to Michael Abbey's great Vanderbilt Parkway {sic} page, with yet more photos and links and a somewhat-blurry 1925 map, and, in turn, to:

Vince Fitzgerald's Motor Parkway page, on his outstanding Hempstead Plains Long Island historical site.

Steve notified me (05 Feb 99) of another site with great photos and reasonably accurate captions; Jeff Saltzman's Streetlight Site's Photo Gallery's Park Scenes area with "Vanderbilt" {sic} Motor Parkway in Queens, with "The present western terminus between 67th & 64th Aves", "Two views midway between 69th & 67th Aves", "Two views at 199th St & 69th Ave.", and "Dead end at Clearview Expwy."

Kevin Walsh's outstanding Forgotten NY site blossomed, on its "Street Scenes" section, with a Motor Parkway page (unbeknownst to me - sorry Kevin); he focuses on the Queens segment.

Denis Byrne has a new Parkway page at http://www.geocities.com/denisbyrne/motorpk.html.

I had mistakenly reported here that Fred Hadley (who gives illustrated lectures on the LIMP) may have put up a "Friends of the Long Island Motor Parkway" site; he assured me (14 Oct 99) it just ain't so!  Someone may be doing a video about the LIMP (it's not noted videographer Mike Laurence, who did the recent one about early aviation on LI; I called and asked).

The New York City Department of Parks & Recreation has a rather nice LIMP site (slightly innaccurate).


AFFINITY ORGANIZATIONS   rev.gif (26 Jul 2011)

The Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society, successor to the Motor Parkway Panel (26 Jul 2011).

Affinity organizations include:

    Parks & Trails New York

(formerly New York & Conservation Association),

and the

    Long Island Greenbelt Trail Conference.


A proposal to Nassau County, filed 15 Apr 2005, for conservation and restoration of the LIMP RoW, may be found on my own domain at http://sbiii.com/limpnass/limpncpk.html.


Good links to general automotive history and related matters are on my Automotive page.

1906 LONG ISLAND MAPS - For links to a huge set of segments of the large-scale 1906 E. Belcher Hyde map of Long Island, done by Albert Volk, "Map Engraver" of Philadelphia, click here.  There is a staggering amount of turn-of-the-20th-century (pre-WWI) LI information, such as all the LIRR junctions, and LIRR Pres. Austin Corbin's estate on map 15, just SSE of Deer Park.  The resolution is not quite good enough to read all property owners's names but many are quite legible, such as William K. Vanderbilt, Jr.'s property (Deepdale) at Lakeville.


The linked tour arrows at the bottom of each page follow this order (or should*):  Home, History and History 2 and 3, 0, 1A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11, and the LIMP-Vanderbilt Cup page (this Index Page and the Bibliography are not in the tour sequence but shown/linked separately).

[* - Please let me know if they do not.]


The Main LIMP Page had overloaded and so it was easier to create this separate index page.
