New York Roads - Harlem River Dr.

North of Exit 23, Harlem River Drive overlays the original Harlem River Speedway, a horse (and later car) racetrack and later a boulevard. That's why there's such a long straightaway at that point. The SB Exit 23 ramps to 155th St. are the southern part of that boulevard, and the photo above is from 155th St. EB at those ramps.
