You Do the Maspeth

Here's the BQE approach the Kosciuszko Bridge seen from 54th Ave. and 46 St.:

And here's the view of the LIE after the split with BQE from a street Google Maps identifies as "Queens Midtown Expressway" (no dash). But it must have a street name too. 53rd Ave. would make sense. Sure enough, my Hagstrom's book has it as "QNS-MIDTOWN EXPWY" (with dash). A 53rd Ave. does not appear on either map until the east side of New Calvary and Mount Zion cemeteries. The indefatigable Research Bureau, using Google Map's own Street View feature, discovered a warehouse on the block with the number 46-18 53rd Ave. Gotcha, Google (and Hagstrom)! Nice view, eh?
