What if Long Island became its own state? Here's how I'd renumber the highways.
What if New York City adopted a similar Parkway shield to what Long Island uses? Here's how I'd design the shield.

These two NYS Highway Condition Maps from the 1960s touch on so many different routes, I have to put them on the main page. The first map, dated 10/29/63, has I-278 on the Sheridan Expwy. (now I-895) and its planned continuation back to I-95, I-678 turning down Astoria Blvd. around the NY 25A mini-freeway at the World's Fairgrounds, NY 22 still entering Manhattan, and I-78 on its planned alignment along the Lower Manhattan, Bushwick, Nassau (later I-878), and Clearview (later I-295) Expressways. The second map, dated 12/30/69, gets quite a bit stranger as NYC/Robert Moses tried to work around freeway revolts and still get things built. I-678 just outright ends at I-495, with a spur of I-278 heading toward Canarsie instead. I-78 is still on the Trans-Manhattan Expwy. but the Bushwick has been cancelled and it now follows I-278 to the Cross-Brooklyn Expwy., with a more roundabout connection of the Nassau and Clearview Expressways via Elmont. There's also a proposed extension along what became the planned NY 878 corridor, although that never finished connecting to Cedarhurst. Meanwhile, take a gander at Staten Island. There's no Willowbrook Expwy., there is a West Shore Expwy., and there's the Shore Front Drive/North Shore Expwy. loop encircling the rest, which of course was never built. You'll find a few more maps like these on a few other Interstate pages, so have fun clicking around!

It takes a village... to lower speed limits this far. Only NYSDOT among state DOT's includes the reason for the speed limit (AREA, TOWN, PARK, and CITY are the others).
