What is the Van Wick?
Likewise, people ask, when was the Van Wyck Expressway built?
Also, how do you pronounce van Wyk? 1.It means "from the district" or "from the quarter" - Dutch. Van Wyk (my last name) is pronounced lyk the Y in Wyoming. In Holland, Wijk was the original spelling; ij is a ligature; becomes a Y with a diaeresis over it - easily dropped.
Moreover, how do you pronounce Van Wyck Expressway?
The Robert Moses-designed expressway was named after 1898 New York mayor Robert Anderson Van Wyck, whose descendants insist that the highway is pronounced "Wike." But even the recorded announcement on the E stop at Jamaica-Van Wyck says "Wick," while meanwhile, an officer in the Dutch Consulate swears it's "Fon Weig,"
Who was the Van Wyck Expressway named after?
Robert Anderson Van Wyck
