Josh's Lost New York

of Howard Johnson's neon glare"

  1. I wonder if the HoJo's on 34th is still there?

  2. No, gone. Just HoJo budget hotels now. The one above was the last of five in Times Square, at 46th & B'way (my favorite counter). That location ran from 1959-2005.

  3. When I was a touring musician with my then-girlfriend many annums ago, whenever we'd stay at a Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge, I'd get my honorary HoJo BloJo. That flavor was not counted, to my knowledge.

    Word Verification - winkle

    I sweat to God!
