Red Apple Rest


Red Apple Rest

The Red Apple Rest was a cafeteria-style restaurant along New York State Route 17, in the Southfield section of the Tuxedo, New York. The Red Apple Rest was a stopping point for many families headed to the Catskill Mountains region of upstate New York.

Before the New York State Thruway was built, the travel time from New York City to the Catskill Mountains could be four or five hours. The Red Apple Rest, located almost halfway, became a major roadside stop.cite web|url=http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=990DE4DF113BF933A0575BC0A96F958260|title=Empty Tables and Full Memories; Lines Are Gone at Fabled Cafeteria on Way to Catskills |last=Berger|first=Joseph|date=1999-08-30|publisher=The New York Times|accessdate=2008-07-21] The restaurant was opened in May 1931 by Rueben Freed, whose clothing business went bust in the stock market crash. The Red Apple Rest boomed in business during the 1940s and 1950s. The Thruway, which was built in 1953, was not the reason for its demise, but the casinos built around the area. The Red Apple Rest closed in 2006 for no apparent reason but a sign on the wall that mentioning a vacation and graduation. The Red Apple Rest was condemned on January 23, 2007 for roof damage.cite web|url=http://www.recordonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20070208/NEWS/702080318&emailAFriend=1|title=Tuxedo's Landmark Red Apple Rest condemned|last=Al-Rikabi|first=Ramsey|date=2007-02-08|publisher=Times Herald-Record|accessdate=2008-07-21]
