How wonderful it is to see the bridge! As a kid father would take me for walks from the Bethpage picnic grounds and we found this place one afternoon. As an adult I went back looking for it only to find it gone. Another piece of history torn down. I got to thinking it must have been buried due to vandals and what do you know! Thank you all!

Hi Cliff:

Thanks for the comment.

You may be thinking of the Motor Parkway bridge that was in Bethpage State Park that was torn down in the 1980s.

The above bridge is located about one mile away in Old Bethpage Village Restoration
