Park Drive is the northern boundary of Pelham Bay Park. A bunch of streets in Pelham Manor (Peace St., Termack Pl., Ridge Pl., Oak Lane, Edgemere St., Beech Tree Lane, Park lane and others (depending whether you look at a Hagstrom or Geographia Map) terminate at Park Drive. In 1884 Park Drive would have been in Pelham Manor, but in 1892 the boundary was moved 20 yards north, so all of these streets are only 20 yards long in the Bronx.
