☞ EAT: Jimmy's Classic Diner
Steel-clad diners can be found in any town or weekend road trip, but they seem to be a dying breed in Manhattan. Interestingly enough, all of the old establishments have closed north of 110th Street, and Jimmy's Classic Diner is one of the newer spots in town. This 24 hour eatery is about a year old and provides the old diner stand-bys in familiar, Americana interior, along with providing take-out service for residents new and old in the ever-diversifying East Harlem neighborhood. The restaurant is located on 1634 Lexington Avenue between 103rd Street and 104th Street, by the 6 train station at 103rd. Tel. (212) 722-5422. Based on current information, the diner was temporarily shut down because of needed repairs. For updates, go to www.jimmysclassicdiner.com.
