The Hauppague Palace

This is Sam's kind of place - a diner! I was coming back from Stonybrook on Saturday night when I saw this all lit up, and fortunately there was a red light, so I was able to stop long enough to shoot this from the car. OK, real photographers don't shoot from cars, but I was desperate! I love all the bright neon colors, and I like that this is a night shot for a change. I only got three shots off before the light changed, and only ONE of them was not blurred from the slightly long exposure. Whew!

Retro looking...if you're not from Long Island, how would you pronouce the name of this town? (Most LIers say HOP-pog.)

I might spell it phonetically as "Hop-Aug" which is very close to what you guessed.

Sam, here.

It gladdens the heart to see ANY place like this- even with modern cars instead of fifties cars. In other parts of this wide land, eateries close by 8:30 or 9:00 except for Applebee's, which some clueless folks think is the height of fine dining. Ecch.

Ecch- like Hauppague, tough to pronounce by those not from the Ny Metro area... .
