As per the book mentioned earlier: “Those in hurry choose to boom along I-95 highway and others take Route 84. But the poets always opt for the Merritt Parkway. … … Built in the 1930s and 37.5 miles long, the Merritt – one of the few American roads listed on the National Register of Historic Places – is a classic, and ever will be.”
