New York Roads - NY 27 - NYC/Nassau Co.
, New York City and Nassau County
Above: Linden Blvd. WB and EB, respectively, just west of Conduit Blvd., Queens.
WB on NY 27 and NB on the Prospect Expressway, as these both end at I-278 and the Battery Tunnel (aka I-478).
Well west of the end of the Sunrise Highway, NY 27 still exists out here, making its way up Linden Boulevard to the Prospect Expressway, finally ending at I-278. This sign, courtesy Doug Kerr, is on SB Ocean Parkway at its very beginning, about to eat the Prospect Expressway and give birth to the Fort Hamilton Parkway. Ocean gets about two blocks of 27 before the route runs away eastward.
Eastbound on Linden Boulevard in Brooklyn (still not the Sunrise Highway yet, and still courtesy Doug Kerr).
An EB Brooklyn photo of my own taken at E. 91st St. There are a few exit numbers off of Linden Blvd., specifically on one stretch a little west of Conduit Blvd., but there are no interchanges, just ramps to the outer ("frontage") roads.
EB on Conduit Blvd. with a very wide median that is clear for over a mile. It was supposed to hold I-78, the Bushwick Expressway, but even though that concept has long died, nothing happens in the median until NY 27 dips down, ready to begin the Nassau Expressway (NY 878).
EB past the beginning of NY 878; the third photo is just a closeup of the right (button-copy) sign in the second.
I'm on the NY 27 EB level of this stack. The Nassau Expressway (878) flies overhead, and then the top level is the ramp from the Belt Parkway EB to NY 878. The second level is only the EB direction of 878, because WB ends over a mile to the east. This was supposed to be a doubled overpass with a WB direction, and then the freeway would have continued up Conduit Blvd. as I mentioned above. Now it's the only official one-way Interstate according to the FHWA, but NY just signs it as a state route.
EB along the side of the Belt Parkway, still Conduit Ave. The last two photos are of different entrances, one before and one after Springfield Blvd.
No old signs on the WB side of Conduit Ave., just this shield.
You do get some old signs if you head toward I-678, most likely because traffic passing under these signs is also coming (separately) from NY 878 and Belt Pkwy. WB.
Once again EB, now legitimately on the Sunrise Highway. Merrick Rd. is old 27, and later on becomes 27A.
The LIRR runs along the north side of NY 27 for several miles, completely on elevated structure (even the stations, as you see). This provides ample room for parking and lets local traffic through whenever it wants, but is quite costly.
Last interesting assembly (EB) before the Suffolk County line. There are a lot of signs here, and the "Entrance" looks most out of place. It's unnecessary.
