WARWICK — If you have ever stopped at the Red Apple Rest in Tuxedo, the landmark restaurant is about to return the favor.

Author Elaine Freed Lindenblatt will be at the Warwick Historical Society's A.W. Buckbee Center on Thursday, Sept. 7, at 6:30 p.m., with the inside story of her father's colorful eatery.

Take a 50-year armchair ride back through time along Route 17 and learn what is was like to grow up in a round-the-clock family business that annually served over one million customers.

It seems that everybody who’s stopped at the Red Apple has a story. Here we have THE story: the restaurant’s shaky beginnings during the Great Depression, it's unlikely proprietor and its colorful and bumpy trip through the decades.

It is an only-in-America success story of a man, a family and a business that could be told only by someone who lived it — and Ms. Lindenblatt did.

Lindenblatt is a daughter of Reuben Freed, a Russian immigrant who turned his roadside stop into the celebrated Red Apple Rest. Lindenblatt is an editor and writer whose essays — on topics ranging from slice-of-life to the Holocaust — are widely published in Hudson Valley newspapers.

She calls her book Stop at the Red Apple “the story I had to tell.”

The event will be held at the A.W. Buckbee Center at 2 Colonial Ave. in Warwick. Admission is $5 for non-members, students and members of the Warwick, Florida, Greenwood Lake and Drowned Lands Historical Societies are free.

Light refreshments will be served.

All proceeds directly support the Warwick Historical Society.

Reservations not required but are appreciated. Please call 845-986-3236 ext 101 to reserve your place.

For more information, call 845-986-3236 ext. 101 or visit www.whsny.org.
