In Memoriam: Joseph L. Herson

Formerly of Manhattan Auto, Imported Cars

It is with sadness that we report the passing of longtime Washington Area automobile dealer Joe Herson, formerly of Manhattan Auto in DC, later becoming Manhattan Imported Cars in Rockville. He died last weekend. He was 85.

A native Washingtonian, Joe worked with his father at the outset of his career that carried through the rich family business character of Manhattan that endured through the years. Manhattan started in the District before moving to its well-known Rockville location in the late 1960s at the intersection of Old Georgetown Road and Route 355, where Joe operated the dealer organization with his brother-in-law, the late Bernie Mills.
