The Vanderbilt Motor Parkway was the first highway to have bridges and overpasses in the entire United States and the first reinforced concrete connection between New York City and Long Island. And it was in Queens!

On August 8th, join Queens Historical Society on this unique virtual tour! We will be exploring the neighborhood on foot and learning about its intricate histories from our tour guide, Marketing & Tourism Director at Queens Economic Development Corp., Rob Mackay. The tour will be a real-time live stream event via Instagram Live. Click here to go to our Instagram page, and follow us to get notified when we go live! You will need an Instagram account to view.
