STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Staten Island has more than its fair share of automobiles, whether in traffic, finding parking spots, or maybe an auto show.
From back in the day when cars from the 1930′s were filling our streets to the current traffic or car shows that spark the interest of all.
Few people are aware that the land speed record was broken on Staten Island 120 years ago on Memorial Day, May 31, 1902, by the Baker Electric Torpedo. In a race along what is now Hylan Boulevard in Grant City, the two-passenger vehicle unofficially set a new record, but two spectators were killed when it went out of control.
