Hogan’s name and family trade lives on through the continuing operation by her sons of three restaurant/diner locations that bear the Hogan’s name, each independently owned: Hogan’s Family Diner in Stony Point, Hogan’s Diner in Orangeburg and Hogan’s Nyack Diner in Nyack.
The original West Nyack location was known as a community hub, which attracted politicians to talk about the events of the day.
The Yonkers-native Janet married her longtime sweetheart, George D. Hogan of Piermont in 1957. The couple lived raised four children in Tappan, where they lived for over 50 years.
