Historic Hempstead Plains - Nassau County, Long Island
The Long Island Motor Parkway
The Vanderbilt Motor Parkway
|Garden City, Long Island - Seventh Street. - The relocated Motor Parkway Toll house is now the home of the Garden City Chamber of Commerce.|
|This is the official marker in Levittown. It would appear that Levitt could not obtain the parkway land to build
on it. Or, he may have decided it was not worth his effort. Thankfully, a piece of it is now preserved in Levittown.
The land belongs to Nassau County. Racing was short lived due to overzealous spectators.
There are still sections of the old Motor Parkway in use. See the Abbey and Anderson sites, they are excellent and very interesting. The Berliner site has old photos, a map and some nice remembrances of the Motor Parkway. The Berliner site also gives locations in the event you would like to see it for yourself.
