Rodney Dangerfield Expressway?
Under the BQE on Northern Blvd. (Rte 25A)
I didn't expect the BQE to show up in Dave Caldwell's excellent piece in today's Times about scenic roadways, "Are We There Yet? Who Cares! Enjoy the View." But, returning to NYC after a couple weeks on the more-or-less open road, including the bucolic Merritt Parkway, it struck me how little the name Brooklyn Queens Expressway is actually used on signage. Does the Grand Central Parkway (Rte. 678, I think) or the Merritt (Rte. 15) get the same treatment? Where's the love?
