There's one in Long Island too, in Locust Valley.

In Staten Island, we have Hooker Place in Port Richmond.

Eveleth Road (off Merrick Blvd. in Springfield Gardens/Jamaica, Queens, NY) -- looks like a dyslexic spelling of Eleventh Road

Head of the Neck Road, Bellport (Long Island), NY

Mount Misery Road, Huntington (Long Island), NY

Oceanview Avenue, Valley Stream (Long Island), NY -- odd because there is NO water around there at all, not even a creek, let alone an "ocean view"

Old South Road in Ozone Park. Parts of Pitkin Avenue use to be called Old South Road and a small stretch still remains between 76 and 77 near Pitkin.

Neal Dow Avenue, Staten Island. Named after an a-hole prohibitionist.

There's also the Paerdegat streets in Brooklyn. Weird.
