There was also a great Automat on 86th Street, along with Barney Google, Lorelei, Kleine Konditorei, Cafe Geiger, and Jager House around the corner, etc. The Museum of the City of New York on Fifth Avenue and 103rd Street has along an exhibit on old toys, a mural painted by a guy who had grown up in the area, showing many of the old sites including the old Loews 72nd Street which was really unique. They also have an Automat exhibit.
one of the shows that orginated here was Fred Waring’s Pennsylvanians
