This Wednesday Morning: A Presentation on the Motor Parkway on the Motor Parkway in Dix Hills!

In my final program  of 2016, I will be presenting “My Hunt for the Vanderbilt Cup Races & the Long Island Motor Parkway"  on the Dix Hills section of the Motor Parkway. The presentation will detail my 13-year research journey, featuring images from the private archives of William K. Vanderbilt , Jr., rare race films and an assortment of “Vanderbilia”.

A book-signing will follow the presentation with all proceeds going to Child Abuse Prevention Services of Long Island (CAPS). The program will begin at 10:00 am at the Half Hollows Hills Community Public Library, 55 Vanderbilt Parkway, Dix Hills. It is sponsored by the Greens Men's Group and all are welcome to attend.
