A Queens Tour of the Long Island Motor Parkway

Many viewers have requested maps of the Long Island Motor Parkway so they can walk this historical road and find remnants of America's first parkway.

I have put together routes in Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties using a 1940 map which still showed the Long Island Motor Parkway right-of-way.

In the first of a three-part series, Click here for a pdf of the Queens LIMP map. Nassau County and Suffolk County maps will follow over the next week.

Long Island Motor Parkway highlights in Queens include:

-The Western Terminus of the Motor Parkway at Horace Harding Boulevard and Peck Avenue

-The Queens Greenway Bike Path from Cunningham Park to Alley Pond Park including hundreds of concrete posts

- Three original Motor Parkway bridges at 73rd Avenue, Hollis Hills Terrace and Springfield Boulevard

- The entrance and exit ramps to the Motor Parkway at Springfield Boulevard
