New York Roads - NY 52
EB in Narrowsburg in 1972, when this short stretch of road linking PA 652 and NY 97 was still NY 52. Now it doesn't have any of these cool old signs and it's just Sullivan CR 24.
County issue state-initial shield, semi-old but not like the state-issue ones, courtesy Doug Kerr. That 52 is no spring chicken, either, and since 52 is state-maintained here (55 is a patchwork of county routes in Putnam County), that one is probably actually quite old.
Westbound at the same intersection (the duplex breaks up).
More old stuff eastbound on the short NY 52/NY 55 duplex in Liberty. The two routes get close to each other again on the east side of the Hudson River, but never meet.
WB near US 209.
Old NY 52, S. Plank Rd./South St., heading west from Newburgh. NY 52 crosses the Newburgh-Beacon Bridge with I-84 (see the links below). This side of the old highway (which used to use a ferry) is reference route 980P; the part of the eastern side in Fishkill is 980J.
Old NY 52 WB into Beacon courtesy John Krakoff, then at and past Verplanck Ave. Business 52 follows old NY 52 through the city until NY 9D, at which point it does what 52 never did, and rides 9D back to the I-84/NY 52 duplex. Follow the 9D link below for more Business 52 photos. (East of Beacon, Business 52 doesn't disappear in favor of 980P, it merely ceases to be signed independently. Apparently it does exist as a duplex.)

EB at the end of NY 52 at US 6, not NY 6, though if you continue east on US 6, it will again try to convince you it's not a US Highway.
