The previous page on Spagnoli Road shows a picture of a bridge used by the Long Island Motor Parkway. The page you are viewing now provides more detail about the bridge which is actually located in the confines of the Old Bethpage Restoration Village in Nassau County (off of Round Swamp Road).
The bridge is on the south side of the Village and as the following pictures show is in an area of think brush. With the approval of a Village official, I set out to find the bridge in the summer of 2003. The bridge was known to the official and he indicated where the bridge should be on a map of the Village. Following the map and equipped with my digital camera and a long sleeved jacket and pants (so as not to worry about poison ivy, thorns, etc.) I set out on the journey. Along the way I met various Village employees, all dressed in the period of the 1850s, which is the theme of the Village, and I explained my purpose. I spent some time with one person in particular who recanted his early days in Bethpage. An interesting and very informative morning as these pictures show.
