Real Estate Ads Mentioning the Motor Parkway

The Motor Parkway contributed to the growth of Long Island by providing a means to access vast parts of the island just beginning to be developed.  Real estate developers often mentioned the Parkway in their ads as a way to attract speculators and home buyers.   Some proved correct, however some proved incorrect in areas in which the Motor Parkway never made its way to (e.g., Riverhead).  Again these ads are mostly from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and the Brooklyn Life.
