New York: Diner II (Instantâneo)

New York: Diner II (Instantâneo)

The first diner was created in 1872, by a man named Walter Scott (Witzel). He worked at a printing press, and decided to sell food out of a horse-pulled wagon (Sawyer). He sold to night workers, and patrons of men’s clubs.

Diners are characterized by offering a wide range of foods, mostly American, a casual atmosphere, a counter, and late operating hours.

“Classic American Diners” are often characterized by an exterior layer of stainless steel—a feature unique to diner architecture.
