Sitting forlorn and vacant across the
Route 119 from the El Dorado, one of Westchester's most popular diners, is the Starlite Coach Diner. It
hasn't served patrons since the mid-late 1990s, yet the sign in the window has
since read "Remodeling Opening Soon." My friends claim the
distinction of eating there the last night it was open. So much for finding a
new eatery. In abandonment, the adjacent parking lot served as a rest stop for truckers looking to
catch some sleep in the middle of their long hauls, and a place where people displayed used
vehicles for sale.
UPDATE: The Starlite Coach Diner was demolished on or about 21, 2008.
Not too far away, on Route 9A in Elmsford, stands the also-long-abandoned Golden Star Diner. Across from Golden Star is a Sam's Club, standing on the site of the Elmsford Drive-In Theater, which did not leave behind a trace of evidence of its existence.
