Fraud!  Fake news! Misrepresentation!  #53 Clody Farmway Bridge (Melville Sand Pits) is in Suffolk County (the county line is at the fence between the Restoration and the sand pits)!  Sam, III

Art, Has anyone commented on the length of the Parkway bridge over Central Ave./LIRR at Bethpage? The three span Parkway bridge over Westbury Ave. in Mineola is less than 80 feet across. the one over Central Ave./LIRR is between 96-100 feet. Anyone?

Al, a construction schematic indicates the girder’s size at 106’ 0” on the west side, and 105’ 2.5” on the east. The 1926 aerial measures the bridge’s shadow at 107’.
