Nominations[edit]

Western New York[edit]

New York State Route 63

- New York State Route 63 north of Geneseo. Cool looking with the blue sky and curve in the road. Ngs61 (talk) 19:55, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

After evaluating the current distribution of SPs, I have to mark this Symbol declined.svg Declined even though this is a very nice photo. WNY and the Rochester/Finger Lakes region have a combined eight of the 21 selected pictures, and adding another would just throw the balance off even more. For that reason, I'm closing off both regions for now and am also closing off the CNY/Leatherstocking regions for the same reason.
I'll close by saying this: I can guarantee that your next nomination will succeed if 1) its quality is on par with past SPs and 2) it's from one of the four remaining regions listed above, which have one photo each (and in Long Island's case, zero). – TMF 00:38, 1 December 2010 (UTC)


North Country[edit]

NY 3/NY 86

- New York State Route 3 and New York State Route 86 just before they split along Lake Flower in Saranac Lake Ngs61 (talk) 19:34, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

Uh, really doesn't show enough of the roads. Daniel Case (talk) 17:01, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

  • Symbol declined.svg Declined for the same reason Daniel Case gave. The photo puts way more emphasis on the lake than on either route. – TMF 12:15, 9 December 2010 (UTC)
NY 74 looking east into Vermont from just west of Ticonderoga

How's this for a North Country pic? Daniel Case (talk) 04:50, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

View east along NY 373

Or this? Daniel Case (talk) 17:56, 17 February 2013 (UTC)


Long Island[edit]

Wantagh State Parkway

- Wantagh State Parkway approaching to Jones Beach. Jones Beach Water Tower in background center. Ngs61 (talk) 19:07, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

  • See, now this is much more worthy of being a portal SP. Kind of odd that the parkway's article doesn't use the photo, but that can be fixed easily. If no one has any objections, I have no problems with adding this to the rotation. – TMF 12:18, 9 December 2010 (UTC)


Capital District[edit]

New York State Route 32

- New York State Route 32 approaching downtown Albany. Ngs61 (talk) 17:32, 30 January 2011 (UTC)
