We believe the following info is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
However, I grew up in Westbury, N.Y. and as a teenager ate at a chrome diner that was located approximately in the center of town near a bank and across from a local institution known as "Tear@ Gershons" stationary store.
The diner was sold and moved to an unknown location in the late 1970's.
My understanding is that this is actually the very same diner that ended up in the movie. I can not substantiate the claim but it came from more than one source. Perhaps there are some photos of downtown Westbury from the 1960s thru 1970s that might contain some images of this diner that could be compared to the one in the movie. My recollection is that the interior was revamped before the shooting of the movie. I hope this will possibly shed some light on the diner's actual origin.
