New York Roads - Bronx River Pkwy.
Bronx River Parkway
The southern end of the Parkway, first photo courtesy Doug Kerr. I like the button-copy red sign.
All NB. Since I have nowhere better to say it, there are median milemarkers that reset at the Westchester County line, while the mileposts on the sides of the road keep count from the southern terminus, giving two sets of miles to confuse you.
All SB. Click on the last photo for an earlier version showing the Exit 5 advance sign pre-replacement, courtesy Doug Kerr. The first photo in this run is also from Doug.
Continuing the SB run a little further.
This stretched shield is on the road leading from NB/SB Exit 6 and the Bronx Zoo parking lot.

SB at Exit 11. I can't even come up with a joke explanation for this.
The original two-lane bridge that took the Bronx River Parkway over a railroad line just south of the Taconic Parkway still carries the northbound lanes.
This is at the northern end of the Bronx River Parkway, at... no, NY 22. A common error, repeated on I-287.
NY 22 and the Taconic never meet, but the Bronx River Parkway will take you there very quickly, here at the circle between the two Parkways.
Looking north from the Bronx River Pkwy./Taconic Pkwy. circle at the dam containing the Kensico Reservoir. It's this dam that stops the Bronx River Parkway, because there's not enough room among the lake, the surrounding trees, and NY 22 to stick a parkway.
