BH Washington Square Memories (63* d) RE: Washington Square Memories 08 Jan 03

And what a Hamlet it was!!! His Equus was no slouch either. Great memories of wonderful times---from the Village to the Theater---and let us not even talk of the pricing then.   

I could do a whole dissertation on the downhill slide of Bway. into just tourist attractions. Where, now, Off Bway offers the meat and potatoes (and the pricing).

Ah---the Horn and Hardart. Another fond memory. In fact there is now a book out about the enterprise by the grandaughter of Hardart. Fascinating---she and her co-author will a guest of mine on my TABLETALK program in Feb. (I will post a note later) to talk about the chain and its history. Oh to taste those baked beans and creamed spinach again---and then get coffee from those beautiful urns.

Before I wallow more in nostalgia I close thinking of which slot I should my nickel in for desert at the Automat.
