Hey there, neighbor, goin' my way? East or west on the Lincoln Highway? Hey there Yankee, give out with a great big thank-ee; You're in God's Country! When You Travel the Great Lincoln Highway! - An excerpt of the Harold Arlen-Yip Harburg score for the 1937 Broadway musical comedy "Hooray For What!"
Fragile, at places, defying and yet tottering on the edges of decomposition, marred with fissures, bits of crumbles and great gaps of once white-hot sincerity is the... Lincoln Highway! The Lincoln Highway was America's first paved transcontinental interstate highway, with 3,389 miles of winding roadway spanning from Times Square, New York to Lincoln Park in San Francisco, California. The Lincoln Highway, formally dedicated October 31, 1913, was one of the most famous roads in the country, and united the East Coast and West Coast as one...thus changing America forever.
