Survey/Mapping Expert Examines the Recently Discovered Motor Parkway Treasure

Dan Jedlicka, Vice-President, Director of Survey and Mapping for L.K. McLean Associates, visited the Waterfront at Roslyn Garage today to examine the Motor Parkway surveys and maps recently discovered in Malverne by contractor Roy Knoernschild. 

Reporter John Hanc interviewed Dan and a few veteran members of the Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society for a future featured article on the discovery. Due to space limitations and a media request, only 15 people attended the get-together. The major surveys and maps will be shown to the public at the Thursday, April 20, 2017 meeting of the Long Island Motor Parkway Preservation Society at the Bethpage Public Library beginning at 7:30 PM.

Thanks for sharing, Howard.  Great treasures should be seen, not hidden!

Thanks for letting us look into the “treasure chest” of historic maps and blueprints. Artifacts like those provide a wonderful opportunity to go back in time.

Sound great—are these from original survey or the extension to Riverhead?  Can’t be with you on the 20th as I’ll be upstate.  Have a great session!

Bob, all the Malverne surveys were from Fresh Meadows to Lake Ronkonkoma.

All well and good but you guys should know better than to handle old documents with bare hands!  Shame, shame!  Sam (the Master Nitpicker), III
