Red Apple Rest, a bit past its heyday!

My family used to stop here in the 70s when my parents were looking to move us up to Orange County from Brooklyn. Friends and I would occasionally stop here for late night snacks in High School Days. It was a fun quirky place.

These photos were shot April 2015.

Some Back story.

The Red Apple Rest was a cafeteria-style restaurant on New York State Route 17, in the Southfields section of TuxedoNew York.[1] It was a noted way station for people traveling to the hotels of the Catskill Mountains of upstate New York.

Before the New York State Thruway was built, the travel time from New York City to the Catskill Mountains was often four or five hours, especially during weekends. The Red Apple Rest, located almost halfway, became a major roadside stopping place.[2] The restaurant was opened in May 1931 by Reuben Freed.[3]
