THE HISTORY OF NEW JERSEY DINERS
September 8 – December 31, 2016
When was the last time you ate at a diner? If you are like millions in New Jersey, the answer is not too long ago. Dubbed “the land of diners,” New Jersey’s highways and main streets are dotted with silver airstreams and neon signs of the classic American diner. Moreover, New Jersey was and still is the diner manufacturing industry’s hub. This exhibition explores the rich history of the Garden State’s favorite casual eatery through classic photographs and historical artifacts.
