New York Roads - FDR Dr.
Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive
Past the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
Last photo courtesy Lou Corsaro, replacing my much smaller shot.
Off of Exit 8, which ends up underneath FDR Drive before heading straight into the opposite onramp/offramp pair.
Another Lou Corsaro photo, and then approaching the end of FDR Drive courtesy Doug Kerr. The exit numbers run straight into Harlem River Drive, since both Drives are really the same roadway.
Last photo is the Exit 15 onramp.
The first cut-and-cover tunnel is for Carl Schurz Park, which overlooks the top of Roosevelt Island. The second is for air-rights buildings just south of the Queensboro Bridge.
The sign at the 62nd St. onramp to FDR SB, the route for traffic coming off of the Queensboro (59th St.) Bridge.
The last sign is on the Exit 8 ramp.
Past the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, in that order.
As part of a 2008 art project, waterfalls were installed around the city, including one right by the Brooklyn Bridge (that almost drowned a pair of boaters) and this one that I believe is the Brooklyn Piers (the other alternative is Governor's Island).
Down to the very end of FDR Drive; it goes through a tunnel and comes out West Street, mysteriously turning from a reference route into NY 9A while passing UNDER the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel (I-478).
It's a pretty dark tunnel, too.
