New York is the home of the world’s first expressway -- the Bronx River Parkway, on which construction started in 1907. This was followed up by Robert Moses’ parkway system for the NYC area. Several of the parkways were built to expressway standards. During the 1970’s, another famous set of expressways were built. Suffolk County became the second county, (after Santa Clara County in California), to maintain a system of county expressways.
