The Alco Takes the Turn

Driver Harry Grant in his #8 ALCO sped through the Hicksville Turn which was at the intersection of Broadway and Old Country Road. Located in one of the more heavily populated areas of Nassau County, this turn attracted a great deal of interest because of its potential to produce accidents and its proximity to the Hicksville railroad station. As with the Massapequa Turn, the Hicksville Turn was banked slightly for safety.
