Ralph Suppa from Paterson, NJ, was the owner of the Belmont Motel when the first photo was taken. Mr. Suppa lived on Belmont Avenue in Paterson. I guess that explains the inspiration for the motel’s name!
The second photo shows an updated Belmont Motel around 1978/1979. A second wing was added to the motel as well as an in-ground swimming pool. The motel still operates today at its original site at 120 Sheridan Ave. (behind the firehouse). Click here for the motel’s website and modern photographs.
