Diner or No Diner - Long Island Version

I didn't feel like making a new blog, so I'm usurping this blog for a moment to play "Diner or No Diner" the game where we don't know the answer, but look for exper opinions on wether or not these diners are factory built, or just imitation diners. I can tell you that the Dix Hills and the Plainview diners do not have tags. The rest, I did not enter.

First we have the Dix Hills Diner to the left.

Next we have

an un-named diner that is

located in Elmont just East

of the Stop 20 Diner

This is the Turnpike Diner on the
Hempstead Turnpike

This is Mama Leonora's Restuarant which is just off of the Sunrise Hgy near Exit 53 and Patchogue.

This possible diner is a Chinese Restaurant known as the Golden Chopsticks up in
Rocky Point

It is located right next to the Rocky Point
Townhouse Diner

This is the Plainview Diner. It is located on
Old Country Road.

So, now that you have seen these six diners. Please make your comments on whether you think these are ... "Diner ... or no Diner"

I have one more to add to this game, but my scanner is not working, so it will have to wait for the bonus round. =]

Welcome to NYC Diners - Past and Present

This Blogger will make it easier for anyone checking out my documentation attempt of diners in New York City. Feel free to comment about any diners you remember, any diners that you have visited, that I do not have listed, or anything else relevant to the topic.

I will do my best to post once every other month, at the least, to keep people aware of any updates to the pages. Future projects could include Nassau and Suffolk Counties to the east and Westchester County to the north. If you are interested in helping out with this part, please leave a message.
