The Diner Sign
The sign above the old Quintessence Diner at New Scotland and Dana Avenues is dark; the beautiful old diner is closed and the property one of several recently acquired by the ever-expanding Albany Medical Ceneter. While I wasn't a big fan of the diner's most recent incarnation, the building itself is a terrific classic diner and it would be wonderful if it could be moved instead of demolished.
A lifelong resident of Albany, N.Y. who loves history and writing, I'm also the site admin for Broadway actor Hugh Panaro. Currently working on a history of the Albany Rural Cemetery. Oh, and a Whovian.
