Cheyenne Diner Heads to Red Hook

When the Cheyenne Diner closed two weeks ago, we worried it would be relocated to somewhere like Wyoming, à la Moondance, but now AMNY’s Urbanite assures us it’ll be parked closer to home: Construction worker Mike O’Connell has purchased the former rail car for $5,000 and, with the help of preservationist Michael Perlman, will move it to Red Hook (home of another throwback gem, Sunny’s) and restore it to its forties splendor. We hope O’Connell will serve beer at the new place, because we’d like to buy him one.
