Zinzi, Thomas and Josephine
From Central Park Historical Society Encyclopedia
Thomas Zinzi was a motorcycle cop on the Old Motor Parkway. When Thomas and Josephine married they lived in the toll house at 301 Hicksville Road, Bethpage, known as the Massapequa Lodge of The Old Motor Parkway and raised three children. Mrs. Zinzi was the gate-keeper. Mrs. Zinzi remembers Charles Lindbergh when he used to stop when he was giving his wife flying lessons at the Hicksville Flying Field. Also General Jimmy Doolittle was another who stopped at the gatehouse. (information gathered from the New York Herald Tribune, "Motor Parkway Old Toll House a Family Home" Sunday, April 26, 1964.)
