Another Diner Goes Down

The Daily News reports that the Cheyenne Diner, the 68-year-old eatery at Ninth and W. 33rd, will shut its doors on Sunday. Ironically, the place's landlord is the Skylight Diner down the street. George Papas, owner of the Skylight, said he plans a nine-story building housing 13 one- and two-bedroom apartments. Spiros Kasimis, a fellow Greek-American, is the owner of the Cheyenne.

The Cheyenne will follow the Moondance and the Market down to death (though there are reports that the Market will return.) NYC gets less noir by the minute.
