riding my bike over the bridge on the bike trail I like to frequent, I had to stop when I noticed the pretty colors and the view of the southern state parkway. I have referred to this parkway as the southern state ever since I can remember. I never questioned its name until a childhood friend pointed out that none of the signs pointing to the well known long island roadway are labeled as such. that hasn't stopped me from calling it the southern state. force of habit I guess.
anyway, according to the info you may find here, it is indeed called southern state parkway. though the road signs label it as southern parkway. maybe there just wasn't enough room on the sign.
wikipedia says it is called both southern parkway or southern state parkway. interesting. what do you call it?
