I first came across this old diner at the corner of Main and Broad streets in Johnson City, New York last winter. It was closed then, but looks like it’s reopened. The Red Robin Diner, at 268 Main Street, is a classic Mountain View-style diner that originally opened in neighboring Binghamton in 1950 and moved to its present location in 1959. The 35-ton diner took two hours to move. Chris and Pat Anagnostakos ran the business for 37 years until retirement. I love everything about this place, from the vintage 7-Up sign to the neon lights and chrome exterior.
J.R. Diner, at 1208 Wolf Street, was manufactured by the Rochester Grills Company in Rochester, New York in the late 1930s. It was originally called Griffeth’s Swanky Diner.
I got creative with these photos from my recent trip to Gettysburg National Military Park, editing them in a vintage style in Adobe Lightroom. I like the way they turned out and feel encouraged to be a little more artistic with the way I edit my photos. What do you think?
I recently had the opportunity to travel through the Adirondack Mountains. Much of the Adirondacks are covered by evergreen forest, but this area in Essex County, New York was particularly ripe with autumn colors.
Labrador Hollow Unique Area is located in Cortland and Onondaga counties, New York. Labrador Pond and Tinker Falls are two unique features in this conservation area, which is a steep-walled glacial valley. There is a two-mile trail leading to an overlook over the 50-foot high falls.
