the ancient mariner
My old diner went through all kinds of stuff in Soho (that’s in
downtown Manhattan, New York City for youse guys out in the
boonies)including being in the movies and being shot at. It
even went thru blizzards with snow up to 27 inchs on the ground
and hurricanes and all kinds of funky people—–but the Wild West
is trying to do it in.
Good for the new owners—–just keep making the best BLT around.
Well, the diner made it’s trek from NY to Wyoming last summer, but no match for the winter storms..
Snow damages Moondance Diner
Sun Jan 6, 1:09 PM ET
The Moondance Diner made it safely through a 2,100-mile trek west from New York City, but it was no match for a Wyoming winter.
Heavy snow damaged the roof and walls of the historic eatery this past week.
New owners Cheryl and Vince Pierce said they’ll continue repairs and renovations, and hope to open it later this year in LaBarge, a town of about 500 at the base of the Rocky Mountains, the Casper Star-Tribune reported Saturday.
They bought the 74-year-old diner for $7,500 and trucked it to Wyoming last summer, saving it from the wrecking ball after a developer bought the diner’s site for luxury condominiums. It had been located near the Holland Tunnel entrance in lower Manhattan, on the fringes of SoHo.
Before its move, the Moondance, originally called the Holland Tunnel Diner, had become a place where celebrity revelers sometimes showed up for breakfast. It was used as a location for scenes in "Spider-Man," "Friends" and "Sex and the City."
