It was bound to happen. after 46 years, Howard Johnson's, HoJo to its loyal fans, has flipped its last burger. The Times Square landmark falling victim to rising property values. Gone are the bright orange booths. The soda fountain. Only the beaming neon Howard Johnson sign and some scattered remnants remain, until the wrecking block arrives. A sign in the window proclaiming the final special. It read: Manager's Special Macaroni + Cheese Salad + Garlic Bread $8.95 Home Made Meat Lasagna, Salad, Garlic Bread 9.99 Double Pork Chops Mashed Potatoes Vegetables, Apple Sauce, Rolls + Butter 10.99 So HoJo's will soon be history. New Yorkers losing one of the last remaining remnants of old Times Square. Only a few people took notice as the store was being emptied. One passerby remarking, "Look, Howard Johnson is closed."
