Then & Now: Lake Success during the 1905 Vanderbilt Cup Race

As shown in this map of the 1905 Vanderbilt Cup Race, Lakeville Road in Lake Success and New Hyde Park made up the western section of the course.


During the 1905 race, a station was set up on Lakeville Road for changing tires and servicing the race cars.This photo was taken on a small hill facing Lake Success on October 14, 1905.


Here is the exact location as it looked on December 24, 2009

Enjoy the Holidays,
