HISTORIC CHEYENNE DINER TO RETIRE SOUTH IN ITS GOLDEN YEARS

NYC’s historic Cheyenne Diner (411 9th Ave & 33rd St), “the
diner of popular demand” was for sale once again, but as of today, Michael Perlman, a.k.a “Diner-Man,” brokered a deal between Joel Owens of Birmingham, AL and property owner George Papas for an undisclosed amount.

According to Perlman, the diner was slated for demolition within the
next few weeks, if a buyer willing to transport the diner wasn’t
located. Joel Owens, head of NAIC, an investment group, became the
fortunate candidate, and has announced plans to restore the Cheyenne to
its 1940s glory with potential additions including a classic car museum
& special events center. Owens states “This is a dream come true,
especially in a state that has no historic freestanding diners.”
Alabama Tourism Director, Lee Sentell, states “This has the potential
to be a great Alabama destination.”
