Riding the Belt Parkway December 18, 2012
Posted by Mike C. in Personal, Photography, Travel.
This post is a sequel to my July 29 post of pictures I took on the Long Island Expressway (Interstate 495) eight days earlier. This time, the focus of my pictures is the Belt Parkway.
These pics were taken late in the morning on October 6 en route to a housewarming party in Howell, New Jersey.
We begin with Exit 24B:
After Exit 20 and before Exit 19:
Approaching Exit 18B:
Mill Basin Drawbridge:
You can see the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge from the drawbridge because the Belt is heading south before re-curving west at Marine Park:
By now, the Belt is heading west again.
Back when my great-grandparents (my mother’s maternal grandparents) lived in Midwood, we would get off at Exit 9 and ride the service road to Ocean Avenue. From there, we made a right on Ocean, drove north to Avenue N, and made a left. They lived between Ocean and East 19th Street.
The MTA’s Stillwell Yard:
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge:
From here, we got on the bridge and continued on our way to Howell.
