Then & Now: Vanderbilt Cup Race Courses

This brief film shows the dramatic changes on Long Island over the last 100 years comparing sections of the Vanderbilt Cup Race courses (1904-1910) to recent views.

Howard, What a great website! Fellow Buick Club member and friend Walter Gosden advised that I check it out.  I never knew these races were in my backyard. I live on the Levittown / Plainedge border, minutes from the “Massapequa Turn” and “Deadmans Curve”  among many others. This site will keep me busy for some time. Keep up the good work.
Regards, Frank Tedesco

Really enjoyed it. Like seeing ghosts of another time. It would be interesting to see ore transitional photos through the years to get a better “connection” to that period.

Hay Frank Tedesco your in the same boat as I am,I’m in Plainview and am pretty new at this too,so don’t feel bad that you don’t know much about all of this,I started out the same way as you are,just keep up with the website and you’ll catch on and learn alot
