Raceway Diner

I have this thing about old neon and chrome Diners. I've driven all over New Jersey to photograph and gawk at them, eat their home cooked meals and marvel at their history. Like New York's vanishing urban architecture, diner "googie" is becoming just as rare. A drive down NJ state highway 22 will bring you face to face with numerous hulks of the 50s diners age, but this Diner beauty resides in Yonkers, across from the raceway. This week's "gotta get out of town" pic.

You ventured to NJ? How daring and adventurous!! I'm with you on this, not for the food but for the design factor. I own two red diner barstools. One day, when I'll own my loft in Tribeca, preferably a triplex with a terrace, etc, I will have a diner-inspired kitchen!
