Then & Now: The George Vanderbilt Cup Trophy


For the revival of the Vanderbilt Cup Races in 1936, a new Vanderbilt cup was designed and produced by Cartier.

The George Vanderbilt Cup trophy was only utilized for the 1936 and 1937 races and is currently on display at Museo Nicolis in Verona, Italy.

The Aviation Country Club House, That was on the Motor Parkway in Hicksville is still around at least five years ago . The Club house was split in two half and moved. Both buildings are homes in Hicksville, off Plainview road. Keep up the good work
