TDH-5101's under the magnificent arch bridge, probably steel clad in concrete, taking the Grand Central Parkway above Hollis Court Boulevard in Holliswood in the Fab Fifties. Hollis Court Boulevard used to be a major diagonal Queens route running from Flushing to Bellaire, but over the decades it has been interrupted and cut back because of the additions of the Long Island (Horace Harding) Expressway, Cunningham Park and the Clearview Expressway. Photo credit goes to Forgotten New York.

Nice shot, thanks for posting. That bridge, nice as it was, seems to be completely gone now. In its place is a multi-level interchange. Probably done when the Parkway was rebuilt and widened in the early sixties...

You are completely correct Traildriver! Here's the same location today. Again, credit goes to Forgotten New York.
