Lake Success -- 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 is one of the towns where 'public' races were held, allowing motorists to use public roads. Vanderbilt thought this was asking for trouble and attempted to create a private racing road.
