Stepping into this place was like stepping into a Mad Men episode. The decor was bascially unchanged since the early 60's. My favorite "old school" burger in Manhattan.

At least they outlasted their one-time neighbor, La Caravelle.
 
Times change.  Tastes change.  Management and concepts get stale at their own peril.  May the free market remain free.

With plenty of well-considered rules and regulations to promote competition and protect consumers.

Many quality hamburgers with unique Roadfood settings will not make it in NYC.

It's much about the latest darlings that are hyped to a lather...by many NYC bloggers that fall in love with the "genius of simple perfection" of putting a hamburger on a potato roll and predicting that this or that hamburger will give Shake Shack a run for the money.

Familiarity does not always breed contempt here.
