Unfortunately, we didn’t have time or room in our stomachs to eat at Chick’s Diner this time around, so this was just a photo stop. This well preserved Mountain View built diner is located at 1032 Moosic St Scranton, PA.

Read the tragic tale of this diner’s move to Washington DC and subsequent demolition. HERE

I just ran across additional photos of it from when it was still operating in Pennsylvania in the courtyard of Adam’s Antique mall.

Diner Finds- NYC

Randall Diner – 1201 Randall Ave. Bronx. Now Allen’s Restaurant. This one is in the Diners of NY book, but as a ’70s diner. Looks like it may be a remodel of the much older diner.

154 Flushing Ave, Brooklyn NYC. Now El Cibao Dinner (yes- Dinner not Diner). These diner/ gas station combinations were popular in the early days. A lot of the gas stations survived in one way or another. A lot of the diners did not.

The Harris Diner

The Harris Diner is an old homebuilt diner, located at 79 North Ave, Owego 13827. It replaced a Ward and Dickinson.
We stopped in for breakfast once, about five years ago, which is when these pictures are from. They really know the dying art of counter showmanship here. The breakfast was timed so perfectly that the toast was caught mid-air as it popped, just after the eggs finished on the griddle, as the plate made its way from behind the counter to in front of us.

The New Ideal Diner

This O’Mahony was replaced by the current massive 1950s stainless O’Mahony which currently stands in Aberdeen, Maryland. It, in turn, replaced an older diner, the Ideal Diner.
