Video “The Black Beast Takes a “Sunday Drive” on the Queens “Motor Parkway” Greenway

With the cooperation of the New York City Parks Department, vintage cars including the Alco Black Beast took a "Sunday Drive" on the Queens "Motor Parkway" Greenway. The event occurred on October 28, 2012, one day prior to the arrival of Superstorm Sandy. Congrats to Ellyn Okvist for coordinating this "Sunday Drive".

Stay Safe,

That stroll through the LIMP with the Black Beast was totally cool! minus the peds and GCP. Riding over Wheeler brought me back 100 even though I’m only 50. I wish I was there.

My son Gram says he will never tire of hearing the beast bellow no matter what the speed!

This was a thrill !!  Loved watching and taking photos as the “parade of autos” came through the park and again down Motor Pkwy hill in Ronkonkoma. Our daughter Jennifer is in love with the Black Beast . My husband Steve rode in one of the cars and was beyond happy. Thank you to all who participated in this very special experience.
