-  Diner culture is a significant feature of life in northern New Jersey, where many classic diners were manufactured in the 1930s and later. Diners of this type can be seen all over the area, some still active as diners, others converted to other uses. Of course, many diners have been significantly altered in appearance through the addition of later building to the original structure, and are unrecognizable as diners of the old or classic type. Still others have been wrecked, while others have been towed to new locations, often out of state.
