I could have sworn I took a Floridian to the

Lexington Ave Automat around Christmas of 88.


Yes, and apologies. I had the timing wrong in my earlier post. The last

Automat, at Lexington and 42d, closed in 1990. The Horn & Hardart Company

has since changed its name, too. I discovered my date error soon after

posting, but neglected to correct myself. Thanks.
