    Although it's fallen an expressway, there isn't really anything express about this road. It takes you to a serene Long Island of you want to get away from the city life momentarily ❤️

    This is the only Commercial-Permitted Highway spanning the entire Long Island. Do not use Northern State/Grand Central/Cross Island as Commercial Vehicle are NOT permitted on the Parkway System.

    Expect traffic! Audio Books, good music and a lot of patience make driving on the LIE bearable.

    Largest parking lot on Long Island. City-bound AM commute? Take Northern State/Grand Central instead. LIE better for PM eastbound commute.
