Empire Diner is located inside a 1946 Fodero Dining Car. The#miniature stainless steel stylized Empire State Building replica was installed on its roof in 1976. In late 2009 the diner closed after lease renewal negotiations with its landlord failed. The@empirestatebldg Replica was removed. In 2010 the diner reopened with a new name only to close again and reopen with its original name, but it has now just closed again due to non-payment of rent. Photo from 2008 appears in our book "New York Nights" along with full interview with owner. We absolutely love this #vintage #diner and its amazing#handpainted #signage.
