A Piece Of The Past Lives On

Howard Johnson's
46th Street and Broadway - New York, NY
We had a late dinner at this awesome restaurant.  It's a historic landmark of the city that has been in business since 1955, and a place where Gene Hackman and Lily Tomlin once worked.  It's such a warm and inviting place to have a meal.  It reminded me a lot of the restaurants in downtown Hazleton when I was growing up.  It's much larger places like Carmen's or the Copper Kettle, of course, but it's had such a small and peaceful vibe that I forgot I was having dinner in one of the busiest cities in the world.
