The Long Island Motor Parkway Bridge over Willis Avenue in Willison Park

Tony B. of Mineola has requested views of the Willis Avenue area of the Long Island Motor Parkway.

The above 1930s image of the Long Island Motor Parkway bridge over Willis Avenue is the only known existing photo of this section. The photo is courtesy of Bob Valentine. Thanks, Bob!

Do we know if this picture is looking north or south?

Thank you for all your exploration and explanations of everything LIMP. How many times I have stood on LIMP next to American Legion on Willis Ave. and wondered how and where the bridge crossed and what it looked like. There must be more pictures like this one. I fear pictures like this are bring discarded by next of kin not realizing how important they are to people like us. How can we reach out to Long Islanders to search their attics for these treasures?
Thank you,
Mark Lanese
