The Grand Central Parkway is the western extension of the Northern Parkway into Queens. It begins at the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (I-278) near the RFK Bridge and runs to the east, providing access to La Guardia Airport. After the airport it curves to the south, crosses Northern Boulevard (NY 25A), and runs parallel to the Van Wyck Expressway (I-278). Several miles south, it passes through an interchange with the Van Wyck Expressway (I-678) and the Jackie Robinson Parkway. At this point, it curves to the east again and runs just to the south of the Long Island Expressway (I-495) until the Queens-Nassau county line, where it becomes the Northern Parkway.
