The Vanishing New York Diner

Afternoon at the Gramercy Diner

Read this article today on the disappearance of the neighborhood diner and it really hit home. Growing up in Queens with a working mother who did not like to cook, many of the meals we had were eaten at neighborhood diners and this is the type of restaurant that I still prefer frequenting when eating out.

Several years ago I did this painting of the Gramercy Diner on 17th Street in Manhattan. This place, like so many others, closed a few months ago and now brown paper covers the windows. Not sure what will be opening in the space, or when that will even occur, with so many vacant storefronts dotting New York's streets these days.
