Dead Diner


This abandoned diner has been rusting away on 37th Avenue in Woodside, Queens, for a decade of more. It must have served a worthy purpose once upon a time, providing cheap grub for the workers at the many industrial plants in the area. Now, it's a ghostly presence. It is being used for storage of some kind.

It's on 37th Avenue around 55th Street. I don't have an exact address. I can guarantee you that nothing will happen with this diner anytime soon. It hasn't moved for years and years and Woodside is not a burgeoning neighborhood.

maybe they will rent it out to an extended Mexican family

If anyone knows the exact address or the owner of this diner Please let me know. I am in search of a Diner to relocate, restore and operate.
You can email me at collisionpartners@yahoo.com
Thanks Dominic

I pass this place all the time. There's no address on the building, but it's on 37th Ave. between 54th and 55th Sts. Queens addresses are pretty simple to figure out, so the address of this place is 54-(some low even number) 37th Ave. The auto electric shop across the street is 54-03. It's just a block down the street from the locally famous kitschy Italian restaurant/store Sapori D'Ischia. You can see it on Google Map street view.

I've seen this place as well. A tall thin guy, dark hair, could be any number of nationalities, lives there. Next door is a korean church and across the street is a factory sized seventh day adventist church. i always kind of figured He was connected to one or the other.
