Coney Island Texas Lunch?

Fabulous small business signage from crumbling Scranton, PA, the boyhood home of future vice president Joe Biden. Ya gotta wonder, though, “Coney Island Texas Lunch”? Scranton is rumored to become a bedroom community of Hoboken, NJ, which is across the river from Manhattan.
Plans are afoot (or they were before the financial meltdown) to build a high speed train between Hoboken and Scranton.

The city is an old world beauty, full of gorgeous pre WW2 architecture, gorgeous Gothic churches, a university campus, and all these terrific small businesses.

Coney Island Texas Weiners, hmmmm, what do they have in common? Love that lounge, I can just picture the inside as dark, smoky, red vinyled seats and the smell of stale alcohol!
I bet that pizza place has great food though!

Yeah, the dudes at the diners are back!! :)

I love the colors and the fonts of that first façade. You have a great eye for nostalgia.

Did you visit the offices of Dunder Mifflin? ;)

That Coney Island Texas Lunch was a victim of an arsonist last year and the owner reopened the place. He had the sign freshly repainted by the son of the guy who did the original. It looks brand new and exactly the same as in 1923.
