Diner demise

Dear Editor
Regarding Larry Penner’s dispatch last week on the demise of the city’s diners, the Bel Aire Diner in Astoria is still open, and where Nevada was, that’s where Georgia Diner moved to.
I miss Shalimar though, but Georgia Diner has good food.
Sincerely,

Save your diner

Dear Editor,
“Sad Milestone for old Avenue Diner” in The Woodhaven Beat column concerning the first anniversary of the closing of the popular diner is reminiscent of other diners who have met a similar fate.
Over the years, we have seen the demise of the Bay Terrace (Bayside), Bel Aire (Astoria), Gold Star (Bayside), Seville (Douglaston), Sage (Elmhurst), Nevada (Elmhurst), Kanes (Flushing), Saravan (Flushing), Palace (Flushing), Future (Fresh Meadows), Forest Hills (Forest Hills), Waterview (Howard Beach), Fame (Jamaica), Scobees Grill (Little Neck), Sky Line (Glen Oaks), Shalimar (Rego Park), and Tasty (Ridgewood) diners.
Remember these people are our neighbors. Our local entrepreneurs who own and operate diners have continued to invest in our community creating new employment opportunities.
They work long hours, pay taxes and provide local employment. If we don’t patronize our local restaurants, they don’t eat either.
In these difficult economic times, it is important to patronize your favorite restaurants.
Here’s hoping that our remaining diners all continue to survive and prosper.
Sincerely,
Larry Penner
Great Neck
