Lake Ronkonkoma -- Motor Parkway
Vanderbilt's Motor Parkway / R. Wines. Journal of Long Island History, Vol. 2, No. 2; p.14-28; Fall 1962.
The story of the construction of the now abandoned Vanderbilt Parkway. Originally designed for safe and hazard free racing, the Vanderbilt Speedway eventually failed. This was the original destination from the Queens start of the private raceway. However, the original road was only 9 miles in length, and sat between the two parts of Long Island.
