New York Roads - NY 22
NB approaching I-287, with an LGS on a pole masquerading on a BGS. The word CROSS is centered perfectly, so I'm guessing NYSDOT simply forgot there's a route number there as well.
Broadway EB exiting the circle where the Taconic State Parkway begins near the end of the Bronx River Parkway. Through the blur you can see TO NY 22 and TO [2-digit width] I-287. Sorry, it was sundown.

SB on NY 22 where I-684 begins. NY 22 takes a numbered exit from itself thanks to 684's influence, even though 684 doesn't begin until that happens.
NY 22 NB/US 6-202 EB at that location. NY 22 was routed up onto the end of I-684, creating a stub for the old end - see link at bottom.
Cemetery Rd. SB in Dover Plains. NY 22 once went under this railroad arch.
CR 81 SB, and 81 NB at CR 3. That's a non-standard banner.
Why put up chevron signs when you can hire local painters? SB with US 44 WB.
A couple of old alignments, SB nearing Millerton. The first is "Old Post Road 3," but that's in quotes because there's not much road left. The second is certainly traversable, Old Post Road 1 heading up to Dutchess CR 60.
SB from Hillsdale all the way down to US 44 right about where it starts its multiplex southwestward. The beautiful scenery is part of Taconic/Copake Falls State Park.
First northbound, next two southbound, just south of the Berkshire Extension of the NY Thruway. This would be fine, since the reference route leading to MA 102 (NY 980D) is about two hundred feet long, except Massachusetts doesn't insert MASS into its shields.
This embossed sign is on Flints Crossing Rd. just north of the MA 102 connection.
Ancient Thruway shield, southbound.
Older (narrow) Taconic shield, northbound.
SB from NY 2 (flying overhead in the first photo) past Berlin NY, where the road to MA has been cut off due to extensive switchbacks.
SB and NB just below NY 313 in Cambridge.
At NY 313, an old wye heads off to the right and joins Rock Side Dr. This was probably how NY 313 originally ended, and was only later modified to end at a T (as opposed to this having been a leg of a true Y intersection).
Washington CR 18A WB, a very short route that connects to Poultney, VT.
SB photos heading away from US 4.
Courtesy Doug Kerr, these should both be US 4. This error is repeated all the way to the Vermont border. And if you squint at that last photo... US 4 should be NORTH, not EAST (4 is E-W through Vermont and New Hampshire, and, as an even number, should well be E-W, but don't tell New York). Chris Jordan sez these are all US 4 shields now.
Lake Champlain at sunrise, as I head south through the Adirondacks.
This sign is erected by NYSDOT in the Adirondack Park on NY 22 NB, with its characteristic yellow on brown color setting it apart from regular signage! The park is larger than Yellowstone, but half of it is developed land! By the way, the exclamation point is most definitely not original to the sign! It's much more of a surprise at night, but sadly you can barely see the point of the photo (get it?), so I've kept Doug Kerr's version.
SB from the top of the Adirondacks, ending with signs from before the mid-1970's when the old font and curve style were abandoned. I think the first one is at NY 442, but there's a chance it's at nearby Arthur Rd.
Outside Plattsburgh at the end of NY 374 EB. All of my NY 22 photos seem to be taken either at night or sunrise.
SB out of Canada on Hemingford Rd., one of the border roads that's named for a place on the other side. It seems to no longer be officially NY 22, certainly based on signage. Thanks to Carl Tessier for getting me a photo of the button copy sign between customs stations, obviously erected by New York. I would have done it, but the flash photo would have been suspicious this late at night (and with three other people in the car).
