Above: Binghamton's Restaurant lasted until some time in 1994. It was gutted but never converted and had been demolished by 2010. Note that in 2000, the squared off Gate Lodge continued to sport its Lamplighter topped space-age cupola.

Below: Even though the street sign advertised the Motor Lodge as a Howard Johnson and that it was "OPEN," it had ceased being a HoJo by May 2002.
