If the naming dispute over the new Empire Diner (and apparently still more conflict over non-union workers, per this Flickr comment) has you wishing for a simpler time when diners didn’t have to lawyer up, well here’s a little treat.

Whatever happened to the Empire State Building replica on its roof? Should the new owners bring it back?
