Bronx Expressways Index

Extends north from Throggs Neck Bridge as Interstate 695, through the Throggs Neck neighborhood of the East Bronx, into the northbound I-95 Bruckner Expressway. The Throggs Neck Expwy was the setting for the 1977 blackout scene in Spike Lee's 1999 film, Summer of Sam, when Ben Gazzara's mob boss character leads his paisans to block off the Layton Avenue overpass to keep outsiders from marauding into their neighborhood.
