The Wikipedia article of the day for August 13, 2018 is New York State Route 22.
New York State Route 22 is a north–south state highway in eastern New York in the United States. It runs parallel to the state’s eastern edge from the outskirts of New York City to the hamlet of Mooers in Clinton County. At 337 miles (542 km), it is the state’s longest north–south route. The southernmost section of the road connected New York City to White Plains in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Route 22 in its modern form was established in 1930 as one of the principal routes from New York City to Canada. It is a two-lane road passing through small villages and hamlets, as well as the city of Plattsburgh in the north, lower Westchester County, and the heavily populated borough of The Bronx. The rural landscapes include picturesque reservoirs of the New York City watershed, dairy farms in the Taconic Mountains and the Berkshires, and the undeveloped, heavily forested Adirondack Park along the shores of Lake Champlain. An 86-mile (138 km) section from Fort Ann to Keeseville is part of the Lakes to Locks Passage, an All-American Road.
