History:







NY 47 was decommissioned as the result of the completion of Rochester's "Outer Loop," I-390, NY 390, I-590, and NY 590. The original alignment began at US 104 at the current Mall at Greece Ridge Center site, and followed Long Pond and Howard Roads, Brooks Ave., Genesee Park Blvd., Elmwood Ave., and Winton Rd., with its eastern terminus at US 104 (Present day NY 404). As new expressways were built around the city, portions of NY 47 were moved off surface streets and onto the newly built expressways. The final alignment had NY 47 start at the NY 390/NY 104 interchange in Greece. NY 47 then followed NY 390, I-390, Plymouth Ave., Elmwood Ave., I-590, and NY 590 to the eastern terminus at NY 18 (What is now the E. Ridge Rd. exit).
Replaced By:


NY 390 (W. Ridge Rd./NY 104 to I-490), I-390 (I-490 to NY 383), NY 383 (I-390 to Elmwood Ave.), I-590 (Elmwood Ave. to I-490), NY 590 (I-490 to E. Ridge Rd.), NY 204 (Brooks Ave. Section)
Recommendation: Assign NY 47 to replace NY 25A in Queens and Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
