If you head from the parking lot at Woodlands Legacy Field Park in Yorktown Heights in the direction of Granite Knolls you eventually pass across a bridge over the Taconic parkway. Continuing along the trail you soon come to these remains. The steering wheel is on the right side of the trail and a big piece (see first picture below) is on the left. Another couple of pieces are further into the woods on the left side of the trail (see second picture below).

When I first came across this (April 2014) my initial reaction was: “How did they get it there?” followed quickly by “Why would you bother?”. Since then the remains have been deteriorating. For example the steering wheel used to be in the car, now it’s on the other side of the trail.

I don’t know much about cars and I really have no idea what this once was although the last picture reminds me a bit of a Volkswagen Beetle.
