The Classic Car Club started 10 years ago in New York City, giving its members keys to the world's most incredible vehicles. Full membership includes driving privileges while new Club House memberships give access to the space without driving.

After the NYPD vacated its Hudson River pier outpost, the Car Club was eager to take over the large riverfront property.

Although the club is private and houses millions of dollars worth of cars, they are not elitist.

Co-Founder Michael Prichinello told Bloomberg they are planning on increasing events open to the public.

"Now that we're part of Hudson River Park, we will be increasing our event space and weekend activities, like car shows, gallery exhibits, mechanics, and educational programs for kids," Prichinello said.
