The Cheyenne Diner on New York City’s West Side is reportedly closing this week. Originally one of the chain of Market Diners, it has been operating as the Cheyenne since around 1986. I first visited it on November 25, 1983 on the way to my first Long Island diner tour. I actually ate there in the late 80’s with John Baeder. I recall we walked quite a few blocks from the East Side towards the West Side because of late afternoon traffic, and then we caught a cab for the rest of the trip.
Here is a link to an AM New York piece on the diner’s closing. http://www.amny.com/entertainment/am-diner0401,0,6247791.story as well as a Daily Post article
