The famous Moondance diner left the nation's largest city early Saturday for a tiny Western town, leaving behind not so much as a bent fork or a greasy spoon.
Famous NYC diner heads for new home on the range
A die-hard group of about 20 former patrons and fans waited through a long night of preparations to bid farewell to the 74-year-old Manhattan eatery, said Michael Perlman, a Queens preservationist and diner aficionado. They blew kisses and took photographs as the Moondance began a 2,100-mile trip to LaBarge, Wyo., he said, describing the moment as bittersweet.
"I am really grateful that it has a secure home in Wyoming," Perlman said, "but we're sort of sad that a New York City icon is abandoning us."
Congratulations to the people who saved the diner. It's nice to hear a success story once in awhile!
