Automat

June 22, 2010

I have a memory from childhood of going to an automat on the lower level of the plaza at 59th and 5th, the old GM building. I don’t claim that this memory is accurate and I have not found anything online that shows that I am correct. Anyone remember?

    I definitely went to a Horn & Hardart’s more than once when I was a kid, but I was too small to remember where they were. I think one was near Macy’s.

    I remember the one on 42nd & 3rd. I can picture the pie behind the window.

    If there was one on 59th and 5th I don’t remember it. 59th and 5th? Like by the GM Building?

    It was IN the basement of the GM building, and it was called The Auto Pub (or Autopub). It was more of a car-themed restaurant than an automat.
