New York City Feelings

I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York's skyline


[EN] On May 15th 2010, the place that's been called the "hippest diner on Earth" will serve its very last meal.

The Empire Diner, for more than 3 decades a New York City institution, located on 10th Avenue and 22nd Street in Chelsea, has lost its lease and will close.

Based in the 30's deco style of roadside diners and train dining cars, it is one of the last classic Streamline diners in New York City and one of the most popular.

Having hosted actors, athletes, politicians, gangsters and local residents and tourists, it went from a greasy spoon that was almost abandoned in 1976 to be later re-opened and transformed into a landmark restaurant that has witnessed the transformation of the Chelsea area.

The diner, featured in movies like Men in Black 2, TV shows like Law and Order and the opening sequence of Saturday Night Live, is a designated New York City landmark.

The structure will probably survive, but the Empire, will become part of NYC's history even though the owners are looking for a new location from where to serve the classic late night menu.

[ES] El próximo 15 de Mayo de 20010, el lugar conocido como "La cena más de moda sobre la tierra" servirá su última comida.

Empire Dinner, se ha convertido en una institución con sus más de 3 décadas sirviendo comidas en la ciudad. Localizado en Chelsea, entre la 10 Ave. y la calle 22.

Su diseño Art Decó de un vagón de tren es uno de los edificios más característicos de Nueva York, uno de los más conocidos y más queridos.

Por este -vagón cafetería- han pasado actores, deportistas, políticos e incluso gánsters. Por supuesto, locales y turistas también han disfrutado de su comida.

Inlcuso ha tomado parte en películas como Men In Black 2, y series de televisión como Ley & Orden, era parte de la entrada de Saturday Night Live, tras haberse convertido en una de las marcas más reconocidas de la ciudad.
