It's always sad when such a place full of memories has to close down. You shot this from a beautiful angle, Ken!

Love the architecture of this Diner and it looks so NY to me!

What a pity, great looking little diner.

Can't be too many of those around these days!

Some great shots; love diners, but really like the shot of the Greenpoint Soda Fountain

That's a real shame! These diners are an endangered species. (One upstate, in Millerton NY, had been deteriorating for years but has just reopoened under dynamic young leadership and is hopping!)

But they have to keep the building. The gleaming metal is wonderful

All the closings . . . I've been seeing more in suburban Detroit. Good photos, at least.

Rob said...

Yet another icon closes?

«Louis» joins the chorus of those sad to see the Empire close - even if he was never able to eat there.
He also likes the pithy comment of the former owner...
