After 73 years of serving the Hudson Valley, it appears that one of the area's longest-operating diners has closed its doors for good.

At one time or another, you have probably found yourself sitting in a booth or at the counter at one of the Hudson Valley's many diners. I'm not sure what it is but most of us love a good "diner" meal every once and a while and thankfully we have numerous diners across the Hudson Valley to choose from when we have that "diner" craving.

Unfortunately, it appears that one of those options has closed its doors after 70+ years of serving Dutchess County.
