Red Apple Rest

The Tuxedo Motel

in the Washington Post

"Before the advent of the New York State Thruway, New Yorkers headed to the Catskills had to spend several hours on New York Route 17 to reach their resort, summer camp or stand-up gig. The Red Apple Rest, located midway between New York City and those destinations, filled many hungry bellies and provided many fond memories. Elaine Freed Lindenblatt chronicles its history in her new book, Stop at the Red Apple: The Restaurant on Route 17.”

RIP Red Apple Rest

And here is Elaine Freed Lindenblatt, the author of the book and the daughter who lived and lives inside this story!
