THE HISTORY OF THE 24-HOUR
The first 24-hour diner opened in New York City in 1936.
Diners became popular in the 1950s and 1960s, as they were seen as a symbol of American culture and prosperity.
Many diners were designed to resemble railroad dining cars, with stainless steel exteriors and neon signs.
Diners served a variety of comfort foods, such as burgers, fries, and milkshakes, as well as breakfast dishes like pancakes and eggs.
In recent years, the popularity of diners has declined due to competition from fast food chains and changing consumer preferences.
However, many diners still exist today and continue to serve as gathering places for communities and travelers alike.
