Do you remember stopping at the Red Apple Rest on your way to the Catskills?

Hear the entertaining inside story of how Reuben Freed’s roadside eatery became the famous Red Apple Rest. The Red Apple was legendary, open from the 1930s through the 1980s on New York’s Route 17. Located midway between New York City and the resorts of the Catskill Mountains, the restaurant served as a rest stop for a who’s who of entertainment luminaries. Elaine Freed Lindenblatt was born into restaurant royalty as the youngest child of the establishment’s founder, Reuben Freed. Stop at the Red Apple is at once an account of growing up in 1950s small-town America, a glimpse into the workings of a successful food operation, and a swan song to a glorious slice of bygone popular culture.
