In the early 1950s, Robert C. Levine went for a walk with a friend in a Queens park and stumbled on remains of the Long Island Motor Parkway. The road ended on an abandoned bridge near ball fields in Fresh Meadows. His friend documented the moment in the above photo with Robert leaning on the guard rail.
This bridge carried the Long Island Motor Parkway over the North Hempstead Turnpike from 1928 to 1938. It was the first bridge after the western terminus at Horace Harding Boulevard. Identical to the three remaining bridges in Queens, it was demolished in the 1950s when the area was developed as part of Cunningham Park.
