Then & Now: The Westbury Old Country Road Turn at the 1909 & 1910 Vanderbilt Cup Races

Another crowd favorite to watch the 1909 and 1910 Vanderbilt Cup Races was the turn of Old Country Road on to Ellison Road (Avenue) in Westbury. Check out the "Then & Now."

Vanderbilt Cup Race Course (1909 & 1910)

The same course was used for both the 1909 and 1910 Vanderbilt Cup Race Course.

Newspapers considered it a "bad turn."

The Westbury LIRR station was less than 1/2 mile from the turn. Seems a little crowded!

Then: 1909

Then: 1910
