New York Roads

New York

What if Long Island became its own state? Here's how I'd renumber the highways.
What if New York City adopted a similar Parkway shield to what Long Island uses? Here's how I'd design the shield.

36th Ave. at Bell Blvd. in Queens was once Lamartine Ave. at Bell Ave. After NYC incorporated the former county, they applied a numerical grid over the former named streets. (Since the streets don't follow a grid, there are some interesting concessions, like skipping dozens of streets at a time or out-of-place numbers continued from a different neighborhood.) Some of the major through streets (like Bell) kept their names, though many were changed to Boulevards. Some of the minor side streets still are named at the bottom of modern street signs in small, afterthought text. In this case, the only reminder of the past name is a stone monument on the corner. Now there are Avenues, Roads, Drives, and Terraces running "east-west" (for whatever definition that neighborhood uses for east-west) and Streets, Lanes, and Places running "north-south." Get in the right corner of the borough and you can get 7 or more identically numbered roads next to each other, since dead-ends and short connectors can also exist as Courts or similar.

It takes a village... to lower speed limits this far. Only NYSDOT among state DOT's includes the reason for the speed limit (AREA, TOWN, PARK, and CITY are the others).
