Diner Find: Mount Vernon, NY

This was the site of the Silver Empire Lunch Wagon going back into the 1910s. Whatever is there now is surely a replacement, but still of pretty early manufacture going by the dimensions. Despite old renovations obliterating every trace of the diner itself on the exterior, the foundation and stairs, combined with decades of directories showing diners at this site make me fairly confident there’s something lurking under all that stucco.

Located at the southern corner of Mt. Vernon Ave. and S. West Street, Mt. Vernon, New York.
