Coaching parties to the racetrack and to the country were favorite pastimes with New York society at the turn of the twentieth century. The coach "Good Times," driven by Aurel Batunyi, is shown leaving the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on Fifth Avenue at 34th Street. Its route was north on Fifth Avenue, through Harlem, and along the Viaduct.
