Field Trip to Explore the Bethpage Section of the Motor Parkway This Saturday Morning

Inspired by Sammy & Dave Russo's exploration of the Bethpage section of our favorite historic parkway, the Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society has joined forces with the Central Park Historical Society to organize a field trip at 10:00 am this Saturday.

Long-time Bethpage resident Len Mulqueen and other Bethpage residents will join Al Velocci and me to conduct a walking tour of the right-of way in this section.  Len will tell childhood tales of playing on the Parkway before the Seaford-Oyster Bay Expressway was constructed.

Please meet us at the corner of Norcross Avenue and Revere Avenue in Bethpage.  We suggest wearing long pants to protect against Mother Nature.

The weather forecast looks great!

Great shot of Sam on the LIMP under wires! This capture will be historical for years. It’s as simple as that. Looking forward to the meeting
