I remember going to Horn and Hardarts automat in New York City when I was a kid. I loved putting the money in the little slots and opening the door to take out a sandwich or a piece of pie. Fun!

Dear Ginny,

I remember going with my

mother to The Horn Hardart

Automats in NYC back in the


I enjoy the food..especially

the dishes that you can get from

the windows for a few cents.

The last time that I went to

the last HH Automat in June,


That was when WPIX TV Ch.11

in NYC was celebraiting it's 40th


The food was great..the soft

drinks good and screens were

showing clips from WPIX TV's

best shows..kinnies and tapes.

There was also dancing too.

Sadly..The Automats are long



The memories of those places

still remain.

The automats are returning probably as a novelty to lure customers. There is one in NYC and if you Google automat and dig, you can find others throughout the world including the UK!http://www.azstarnet.com/allheadlines/144489
