Moondance Diner on Sixth Avenue at Grand Street in Manhattan closed in 2007, to make room for a luxury hotel.

The 1930s #vintage diner was known for its #burgers πŸ”πŸŸ #fries and milk shakes and was owned by Sunny Sharma. The TV show "Friends" used Moondance as the #diner where the character Monica, played by Courtney Cox worked. Moondance Diner was also used by the film "Spider-Man" as the place where Mary Jane Watson played by Kirsten Dunst was employed. Luckily the diner was saved from demolition and purchased for $7,500 by Vince and Cheryl Pierce, who moved the structure by flat-bed truck to LaBarge, Wyoming at a cost of $40,000. After some much needed repairs, they reopened the diner in Wyoming in 2008 where it remained in operation until 2012. We especially loved the diner's rotating moon πŸŒ™ #sign and the sparkling ✨ #lettering spelling "Moondance" in an interesting #font. We haven't heard any news on the fate of this diner since its closure a few years ago but hope that it will again be saved. #storefront #disappearingfaceofnewyork
