Hicksville-Massapequa Road (2015/16)

The Motor Parkway traveled between Wantagh Avenue and Hicksville-Massapequa Road on property now used by the Nassau County PD's 8th Precinct.  A Motor Parkway lodge (along with an original parkway garage still standing) were once located here; additional information can be found on vanderbiltcupraces.com.

These pictures were taken in Dec., 2015 and Jan., 2016 and along with the maps give a good feel for the stretch of parkway located here.  The parkway continued across Hicksville-Massapequa Road through what are now backyards for houses on Avoca Avenue and Hicksville Road Court.
