New York Roads - NY 9A - N. of Manhattan

north of Manhattan



SB up to and across the Henry Hudson Bridge, courtesy Lou Corsaro's camera (but I was the photographer). The bridge was built in 1936, one of the first elements of the burgeoning parkway system, and to this day there's still a midspan toll like on the Tobin Bridge in Boston.


Looking west at the Henry Hudson Bridge from the Columbia University athletic complex.


The last set of photos from Lou's camera, heading south from where NY 9A joins the Henry Hudson Parkway (at Exit 23) to meet the previous runs of photos. The bridges are almost as interesting as the button copy, whether under construction or labeled as a cross-street (I'm looking at you, W. 235th) when it's actually a pedestrian overpass.


Turned around NB; NY 9A leaves at Exit 23 and the remnant of the Henry Hudson runs northward into the Saw Mill at the Mosholu. Say your parkways like that and you too can be a New Yorker.


SB from Ardsley to the US 9 concurrency (follow the big link below for those photos). The only modern element in any photo is the pedestrian crossing sign (well, and the Saw Mill River Rd. street sign washed out by the blue building).


It would seem the old but thorough SB LGS has been replaced with one that's 30% less helpful in distance and 90% less helpful in message. X-West sounds like a name even Kanye rejected for his baby.


Continuing south onto the onramp, where a narrow shield informs you that the NY Thruway Authority maintains this highway (the only free road in their jurisdiction, since the return of I-84 to NYSDOT). Redd Foxx is not impressed with this association.


Humpback shields greet the western end of NY 100B.


Overhead LGS's are old as a rule. This one introduces another upcoming concurrency, photos of which can be found via the big link below.


Old Albany Post Rd. EB under the northernmost overpass on the Briarcliff-Peekskill Pkwy. (and on all of 9A).


SB through Buchanan (apparently a village) to Croton-on-Hudson, where the original concrete of US 9 still supports NY 9A traffic. The disjointed assembly is by the entrance to beautiful Croton Point, a multiplex necessitated by NYSDOT's decision to get rid of the old 9 bridge and keep only the new one on the Croton Expressway.
