Ocean to Ocean in a T

The Centennial of the 1909 Ocean to Ocean Endurance Contest

The above picture was taken at the Crowne Plaza Hotel garage entrance in White Plains. My wife and I visited the facility last week. I spoke with Peter and Mary Bernhardt and they said that we can park for free in the hotel parking garage. Please be aware that the garage has a height restriction of 6' 4", as the picture indicates. This will be a concern for all of us. With the top down, our '24 touring car will be able to enter the garage. Once we reach the 7th floor of the garage, there is room to put the top back up (I think). The 6' 4" restriction is due to the many support beams in the structure that are rather low. It is my firm belief that closed cars and hacks have no chance of entering the garage.

Trying to anticipate the above problem for many of you, I took the picture below of a public parking structure directly across the street from the hotel. As you can see, the ceiling height there is much higher. There is a sign posted that no overnight parking is allowed, but I met with the manager and he said they will allow our cars overnight. Please be aware that there is very limited security between midnight and 5:00 am in this lot. I am looking for the cantact info for the public garage - I will post it here when I locate it.

I hope this information is useful to you.

Found it! The parking garage directly across the street from the Crowne Plaza is 1 Westchester Pavilion. (This is the second picture I posted above in this blog.) The manager is Victor Cuellar and his phone number is 914-946-8339.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for helping with things like this. It sure would be nice to have security for the Coupe.

Yes, thank you for all of your time and efforts. My 1919 Sedan fits through my 7' garage door, but with very little room to spare.

I want to thank you guys for lining up the ducks as they say. Our support van is a hi-top and the pictured public parking would be the ticket. I have a friend who works at the US Department of transportation who's office is in White Plains village if that may help. You can use his name, I have told him about the Model T run ( not the parking) His name is Tom Louizou, United Staes Department of Transportation. I worked in the US DOT Wash DC office in 1994 -95 ( I was assigned there by the NY Governor). Gary Foerster

well may be the hotel should provide security for that garage since we are all spending so much money there. My coupe is 6'7" floor to ceiling.
