These are photographs of the interior of a restaurant known as "The Hop" in Beacon NY. Until last fall it was a thriving concern. It was always full. Diner without a reservation was difficult to impossible most nights. It was a real community hangout. Then it closed very suddenly. There is much gossip about what happened, but gossip is all I know, so I won't repeat any of it here. Not much seems to be happening months later. It looks as though it could open again tomorrow.
