Thanks to Twitter follower @BhamWiki, we’ve learned that New York’s historic Cheyenne Diner will be making it’s new home in Birmingham, AL. The diner was closed by a rival Midtown eatery early last year. The landmark Art Moderne structure was originally slated for a move from its home of 68 years at 9th Avenue and 33rd Street to the Red Hook section of Brooklyn (as reported on Gothamist in April). Unfortunately, it was beginning to look like efforts were not going to be successful.
If you want to get a better idea of what we’re gaining here, check out the photos on Tom Fletcher’s New York Architecture site. Hopefully we’ll find out exactly where it’s going soon.
