It was my way and the highway for a newborn New Yorker, who’s now named after the expressway where she was born in her parents’ minivan as they raced to a hospital.
Alie Albarracin arrived around 3 a.m. Wednesday as parents Maria and Ivan Albarracin headed east on the Long Island Expressway from their Queens home to Bellevue Hospital.
Her name is spelled A-L-I-E. The highway’s nickname is the “L.I.E.”
Her parents tell the New York Post they planned to name their third child Aurora but switched it after the unusual birth.
