Crazy no-trucks allowed road leading north out of NYC that pre-dates the interstate highway system in america.
Originally comissioned by FDR when he was governor of NY state so he could get from Manhattan to his house in the Adarondack (sp?) area in half the time.
Narrow as all hell, no sholder, cops pull you over onto the grass next to the trees.
Extremely fun to drive really, really fast at night.
Has evil drainage grates in the left hand lane that will knock your car out of alignment.
A quicker way to get out of NYC to New Hampshire/VT. if you want to avoid evil I-95.
I nearly wrapped my car around a tree going 90 on the Taconic. It was rad.
