New York Roads - Ocean and Bay Pkwys.
Ocean Parkway, Bay Parkway
Looking southward along Bay Parkway at the Ocean Parkway interchange, where you can see loop ramps shared with Ocean Pkwy. EB, and then looking northward from the same spot, both courtesy Scott Colbert.
WB on Bay Pkwy. (you can see the south to west curve in the first photo above) as it approaches Jones Beach and its end, again courtesy Scott Colbert.
Ocean Parkway heading EB away from Bay Pkwy. looks every bit as barren. Why are there freeways here? Because these photos, and presumably Scott's as well, were taken well outside the peak summer season, and thus no one has a reason to come to the beach. Well, almost no one - you'll see a car or two on this page.
Alphabet soup and new roundabout signs approaching and entering the roundabout at the southern end of the Wantagh State Parkway. Until 2007, this was a three-lane traffic circle - it probably functions better as a three-lane roundabout, but this many lanes should really come together in an interchange. The tall obelisk in the center is the Jones Beach Water Tower, designed by Robert Moses. It has a twin at the southern end of the Robert Moses Causeway.
