Judging by the local festivals celebrating this fruit, Long Island loves strawberries, which may explain Strawberry Lanes in Levittown, Roslyn Heights, Brookhaven and on Shelter Island. Fort Salonga also has a Strawberry Knoll Court. As for tree fruits, streets aplenty on the Island are named for them. There are a half dozen Apple Streets, including those in Southampton, Oyster Bay and East Meadow as you can see in Long Island streets map. We got a hankering for peach cobbler just thinking about Peach Drive in Roslyn and Peach Street in Bethpage and Wading River. Some folks prefer citrus fruits, in which case they can drive over to Orange Street in Bellmore or Stony Brook. Considering how delicious it is, it was surprising that the only Lime Avenue is in Brookhaven.
The most abundant road named for a food on Long Island is the snack-inducing Chestnut Street. We found more than 50, including those in Port Jefferson, Shirley, Woodbury, Cedarhurst, Mineola and Old Westbury as its shown in Long Island streets map. Driving motorists nuts for nuts are plenty of streets named for walnuts, too. We found over 40 of them, including Walnut Streets in Massapequa, Coram, Kings Park, Greenvale, East Norwich, Uniondale and Manhasset. By far the most plentiful fruit street on the Island is cherry, with about as many of those as there are Walnut Streets, with Cherry Streets found in Calverton, Selden, Wyandanch, Port Jefferson Station, Oceanside, Lattingtown, Valley Stream, Inwood, Carle Place, Bayville, Hempstead and Bellerose. East Quogue and Sag Harbor bucked the trend with Wild Cherry Lane.
Not surprising if you just drove by Cranberry Street in Islip, Cranberry Drive in Mastic Beach, Cranberry Lane in Plainview or Cranberry Hole Road in East Hampton as its mentioned in Long Island streets map. Even more popular than strawberries and cranberries are blueberries. We found Blueberry Lanes in East Hampton, Patchogue, Hicksville, Stony Brook, Oyster Bay, on Shelter Island and a Blueberry Court in East Quogue. Fruit lovers partial to pears can take a bite out of Pear Court in St. James and Pear Street in Brentwood or Pear Road in Dix Hills. Riverhead has a bunch of berry-related streets. Blackberry, Strawberry and Blueberry Commons are in the same condo complex and across town is Cranberry Street.

The Long Island Expressway, Northern State Parkway, and Southern State Parkway, all products of the automobile-centered planning of Robert Moses, make east–west travel on the island straightforward, if not always quick. Indeed, locals refer to Long Island Expressway as "The World Longest Parking Lot". For a less stressful ride, one only needs to travel east across Long Island to the "Twin Forks" as you can see in Long Island roads map. These two peninsulas offer a long and ambling journey far removed from the hustle and bustle of suburbia and the city further west. Indeed, even after one reaches the end of Long Island Expressway in Riverhead, it is another 45 minute drive along Middle Country Road to reach the eastern end of the North Fork at Orient Point, and over an hour along Sunrise and Montauk Highways to reach Montauk Point at the end of the South Fork.
Long Island has an early history of roads and automobiles in America. Today, it can surely be said that Long Islanders are living up to this American legacy. There are 19 major highways on Long Island as its shown in Long Island roads map. The most travelled you can say are the major roads like the Long Island Expressway (LIE), Northern State Parkway, and Southern State Parkway. There is so much ground to cover, totaling 1,377 square miles of land area. There is also the LIE running a significant width of Long Island and serving as a main artery. Its no surprise that the LIE is a road heavily travelled on each day and known to be congested at all-times of the day that it has earned the recognition by locals as “The World Longest Parking Lot.” The following is a listing and brief description of the main roads and other highways.
