A part of American history since the 1870’s,the term “diner” is a derivative of “dining car”and owes its distinctive appearance to therailroad dining cars from which they are patterned.At first, decommissioned railroad cars and trolleyswere used because they were easy to transport. Intime, manufacturers built prefabricated buildingswith the look of a dining car.
The Main Street Diner is a late 1950’s Master Diner. It was built in New Jersey, brought to Hempstead,Long Island, New York, and then shipped into town. This classic diner was then laid on a foundation with a brick façade along its front, and stainless steel gleaming from all around. Later, a back room was attached to the diner, which was used as a storage room. In 2008, the diner was renovated, and this back room became the kitchen where all the authentic American cooking is done today.
The Main Street Diner kept many of its original features, such as the beautiful terrazzo flooring, railroad car lighting and gleaming stainless steel inside and out.
