NY State Thruway: Number 25 in "What Made Genesee County Famous"

posted by Philip Anselmo in history, Holland Land Office Museum, thruway.

So it begins... The Holland Land Office Museum kicked off its countdown of "The Twenty-Five Things that Made Genesee County Famous."

And what, you ask, was the first to make the list?

None other than that 500 mile stretch of bleached tarmac and costly tolls otherwise known as the Governor Thomas E. Dewey Thruway, "the longest toll road in America."

Visit the HLOM site for more info and to keep up with the countdown.

And if I may say so as an transplant to the Empire State, the greatest blemish on an otherwise wonderful New York. (Well, that and property taxes).
