“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Was going to mention the Bel Air on 21st Street in Astoria, but an Eater commenter beat me to it.

Best diner in the city - bar none. Been going there since the late 50's - before the renovation and name change.

 

And they have unlimited parking!!!!!

 

Just to nit-pick, the diner is spelled Bel Aire.

 

Also consider the Neptune Diner - 31st Street near the Triborough  (RFK) Bridge.

i mean, Jersey gets a bad rap but, the bagels, pizza by the slice and diners are all superior to anything in Manhattan outside of one or two slice places.

Typo on my part.  And I went to the Neptune a bunch when I lived in Astoria, but Bel Aire was an easy walk.

 

How I wish I had a Jersey diner here.  Even the most unpretentious places charge you for coffee--no 2 eggs + hash browns + toast + coffee + juice specials.
