New York State Route 329

New York State Route 329 (NY 329) is a 2.57-mile (4.14 km) long state highway near Watkins Glen, New York, in the United States. The western terminus is at an intersection with Meads Hill Road in Dix. The eastern terminus is at a junction with NY 14 and NY 414 in Watkins Glen. NY 329 passes south of Watkins Glen State Park while New York State Route 419, a highway 0.30 miles (0.48 km) in length, connects NY 329 to the park. Both NY 329 and NY 419 pass through sparsely populated, rural areas.

NY 329 was assigned as part of the 1930 renumbering of state highways in New York while NY 419 was in place by 1970. NY 329 originally extended as far west as the hamlet of Townsend; however, it was cut back to its current length in the 1960s. From 1948 to 1952, NY 329 was part of the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Course, a road course around Watkins Glen State Park. Prior to the creation of the modern New York state route system in 1924, the routing of NY 329 was designated, but not signed, as part of legislative Route 46 from 1911 to 1921.

Famous quotes containing the words route, state and/or york:

    A route differs from a road not only because it is solely intended for vehicles, but also because it is merely a line that connects one point with another. A route has no meaning in itself; its meaning derives entirely from the two points that it connects. A road is a tribute to space. Every stretch of road has meaning in itself and invites us to stop. A route is the triumphant devaluation of space, which thanks to it has been reduced to a mere obstacle to human movement and a waste of time.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    If intercourse gives you thrombosis
    And continence causes neurosis,
    I’d rather expire
    Fulfilling desire
    Than live in a state of psychosis.

    Half the testimony in the Bobbitt case sounded like Sally Jesse Raphael. Juries watch programs like this and are ready to listen.
