The location for last week's mystery aerial is the Hempstead Plains looking north in East Meadow, now Eisenhower Park. More aerials of this area are posted below.
Congratulations to Bill Bellmer, Greg O. and Marilyn for correct submissions!
This 1938 aerial looking north basically matches the above aerial. The Motor Parkway is the top road. Stewart Avenue is below the Motor Parkway marked by a parallel array of trees. See captions below.
This closeup of the aerial shows the Merrick Avenue Motor Parkway Bridge, the Meadow Brook Lodge and the entrance to the lodge.
A similar view of the closeup looking west.
