WATCHUNG INFORMATION WANTED

Remembering the Past by Diane Norek HarrisonWATCHUNG-I received the following email from Bruce Robinson: “Hi Diane, I just came across your website and noticed the reference to Werner’s Lake Edge Restaurant in Watchung. When I was a child living in Newark, my father, who was the manager of the Robert Treat Hotel hired a head waiter named Werner. Eventually, Werner opened his own family restaurant called The Lake Edge. That was a long time ago, but I remember Werner very well and now want to include information about him in a book I am writing in celebration of the Robert Treat Hotel’s 100th birthday next year.

His family were Germans and may have been active in the German-American Bund. I am hoping you can ask your readers if anyone knows Werner’s last name.”

If anyone has information on this subject and wants to share with me to pass along or share your own memories of any town in Union or Middlesex counties please email me at dianenorekharrison@juno.com
