The Chuck Wagon Diner is a Mountain View from 1956. It was originally located in Champaign, IL. It was moved to Villa Grove, IL in 1976. In 1983, the diner was moved to Urbana, IL where it was known as the Elite Diner. It closed in 2002 and was moved to Livonia, MI. It never opened there and was moved to the Albany area in 2007. It reopened here in 2010 with the original neon sign which had been in storage since 1976. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3. [map]

Village Diner
Red Hook, NY
The Village Diner is a Silk City (#5113) from 1951. It was located in Rhinebeck, NY until being moved here. It was named the Halfway Diner (still painted on the side) because Rhinebeck is halfway between New York City and Albany. At one time, the diner was moved closer to the Taconic Parkway but business was not good there and it was moved back to this spot. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see this website. [map]

Spicy's Bar-B-Que
Riverhead, NY
Spicy's Bar-B-Que is a Kullman diner from the 1950s. The same owners also operate a Spicy's location in a McDonald's style building in Bellport, NY. [map]

Highland Park Diner
Rochester, NY
The Highland Park Diner is a 1948 Orleans. The Orleans Manufacturing Company in nearby Albion, NY only built three diners and this is the sole survivor. This diner, still at its original site, was first named Dauphin's Superior Diner. It closed in 1974 and reopened in 1976 as an OTB (off-track betting) parlor. Much of the interior was stripped at that point. For more, see this website.

The OTB closed in 1986 and the diner was restored to a close facsimile of its original design for about $200,000. The bright cream porcelain is intact inside and out. This diner is a bit on the long side with room to seat 50 customers. A new $8,000, 28-foot-long sign was also installed on the roof. [map]

Skyliner Diner
Rochester, NY
The Skyliner Diner is a Fodero diner from 1956. It was originally known as the Mountain Top Diner and was located in Trout Run, PA. It was moved to Rochester in 1992 and then sold to the Strong Museum in 1995. It was restored by the museum which is now known as the National Museum of Play. The diner is located inside and is operated by Bill Gray's.
