Cheyenne Diner bound for Brooklyn
A reborn Cheyenne Diner could be serving up bison burgers, French fries and chocolate egg creams on Brooklyn’s Red Hook waterfront by the summer.
Preservationist Michael Perlman said Monday a contract has been signed to move the Cheyenne, one of the city’s last rail-car-style diners, to the Borough of Kings.
The Cheyenne, a landmark at 33th St. and Ninth Ave. in Manhattan for more than 50 years, closed April 6 to make way for a nine-story residential and commercial development.
Perlman, who formed a committee to save the diner, said Mike O’Connell of O’C Construction, the son of noted Red Hook developer Greg O’Connell, is the buyer.
