I am giving my age away right from the start. Growing up in Hells Kitchen I used to frequent most of the Automats in the mid town area.
Here are a few locations I recall, can anybody add afew more? or correct my dimming memory
Forty Second Street (On the South side) near 8th Ave.- On 8th Ave between 45 and 46 Street.-
Again on 8th Ave.between 52 and 53th or was it 53 and 54 ?? There were a few others on side streets I can't pinpoint but one in particular was down a flight of steps.

I am thrilled to have come across this site. My older brother Francis Sargent was a singer on the show. He was called the little man with the big voice. His singing partner was a little girl named Carol Ann Fago.
I remember all of the names of the people listed on this site. We even once visited the twins in the Rockaways.
I used to go to the show with my parents and brother every weekend.Sometimes appearing in the backround scenes. I remember "Aunt Alice" Clements as she was called and of course Mr. Herlihy.
This has been a wonderful trip down memory lane.

I lived in New York during the early fifties,and remember the automat building on Broadway and 104th.st. Which was then a Food-o-Rama supermarket. I lived in the building adjacent to it between 104th. and 105th.st. In front of the Post Office. Next to the automat building was the Edison which showed Spanish speaking movies. Would any one have a picture of this movie house.?

Does anyone know the address of the Horn & Hardart Automat that was located on John St. in Manhattan?

I grew up in upper Manhattan ( Washington Heights) and during the late 50s and early 60s I would frequent Horn & Hardart.I would like to know the exact location.I believe it was somewhere on 181st street between St. Nicholas ave and Wadsworth Ave. or on St.Nicholas Ave.between 179th Street and 180th Street?

Thank you Trish! I first found out about Chipotle's sustainable food iniviatite when I watched the movie Food, Inc. There's an ABC special snippet in the special features section where they interview the founder, and the major sustainable farm featured in the movie is one of Chipotle's suppliers. It was really kinda' cool.I'm glad the article had that effect on you go get you a burrito you can feel good about!

I love love love love Chipotle's. I remember when I moved to Denver in '95 they only had 2 or 3 rteuatranss. What is ironic to me is that they were part of Mickey D's at one time. Now I know what I'm having for lunch!

I too am trying to figure out the Horn & Hardart in lower Manhattan, in the Wall St., area. I believe somewhere in the early 60's.

Too cool! I've been waiting for the rutren of the automat for years.I'm old enough to have fond memories of Horn and Hardart's and I've missed it since they closed for good about 15 years ago. I'll be sure to check out Bamn next time I'm downtown.Oddly, I was walking around St. Mark's just a couple of weeks ago and I didn't even spot it.

Building in postcard pitcrue is no longer standing. Formerly stood at NE corner of Center and Jefferson avenues. Has been parking lot for decades. It was third Odd Fellows Hall in Westwood, opening on January 31, 1900. First Odd Fellows Hall in Westwood was at address now known as 313 Broadway, Westwood. It opened on March 14, 1884. Building is still standing. Second Odd Fellows Hall in Westwood was on second floor of building at NW corner of Center and Westwood avenues.It opened c. March 26, 1897. I don't think building is still standing. One story CVS store occupies that corner now. See Westwood Time Line Westwood, N.J. 1861-1905, available in Westwood Public Library for more details on Westwood Odd Fellows.

I need to say, as a great deal as I enjoyed rnediag what you had to say, I couldnt assist but lose interest following a although. Its as if you had a fantastic grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to consist of your readers. Maybe you should take into consideration this from far a lot more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its much better in case you take into consideration what other people might need to say instead of just going for a gut reaction towards the subject. Take into consideration adjusting your own believed procedure and giving other people who may possibly read this the benefit of the doubt.
