The Korean War Veterans Parkway, formerly the Richmond Parkway, was laid out by Robert Moses (1888-1981), who was New York City’s Parks Commissioner (1934-1960), city construction coordinator, and chairman of the Triborough Bridge and Tunnel Authority. He also held nine other state and city positions. This parkway was part of his network of parkways for the New York City area. Although it was conceived and planned in the early 1930s, construction did not begin until 1966 and was completed in 1972. The parkway extends southwest from the southern end of LaTourette Park, then turns west at Huguenot Avenue, interchanges with the West Shore Expressway, and continues across the Outerbridge Crossing of the Arthur Kill, terminating in New Jersey.
