Tony D: I would like to thank you for writing your books on the LIMP and the Vanderbilt Cup Races. I saw that you have an aerial photo of Stewart ave and the LIMP in Bethpage from the 50's. It stops at the south side of Central Avenue,do you have a photo of just north of this? I would like to see how far it was from the "town " of Bethpage. Thanks again .
Tony, thanks for the question! Here are aerial views of the Long Island Motor Parkway in the Bethpage area taken in 1926 and 1950:
Corrected December 12, 2010: Long and closeup views of the Motor Parkway in Bethpage (marked by the dotted line) as seen in 1926. The straight diagonal line is the Long Island Rail Road. The rail track and Central Avenue intersected at the Motor Parkway Bridge.
These 1950s aerials showed the location of the two Motor Parkway "Deadman Curves" in Bethpage.
