Revisiting Cheyenne

As with my very first post, here are some pics of the Cheyenne Diner in midtown, now closed and awaiting relocation to Red Hook. Lucky Stiffs!

Oh Boy! This diner is so cool! Our family LOVES to eat at diner's and we're always on the lookout for places just like this one! Well....I guess if we're ever up New York way, we'll stop in! As always, thanks for the cool photos of retro stuff! Your blog is one of my absolute favorites! I just adore all those old signs and buildings!

Also...thanks so much for that nice comment you left on Laurie's blog about the blog award thingie!

We don't need more high rises, we need more stainless steel diners. But it is being saved so I'll save my outrage for another time.

Thanks Ken. I guess you'll be trudging over to Red Hook in due course.

You've got the gift. Which is rather strange, considering your self-portrait. I would guess you're a bit of a cad, and remind me of someone, but can't quite put my finger on it.

This dinner looks very nice. Love so much this kind of architecture!
So good idea to revival your first post.

Hi Ken Mac,
I forgot to say that I would love to have your participation on Ecological Day, next 2th November.

Wait... they will move it to Brooklyn? How cool is that! You'll soon have to go on a mission to hunt it down over there.
So where is it now? I know midtown but I cannot figure out where.
