The "Green Island" which is accessed by driving through the far right toll booth on the Wantaugh Parkway (NY State permit needed) promised to be a great boon for fisherman. However, it seems to be closed right now and no one seems to know when it will open. On the Meadowbrook there is a small parking lot in the center median of the parkway. It is a good walk to the bridges and I am always dodging people running across the highway. Be careful. It is much easier to goto WEST END II. But please don't litter.
