Welcome to the New York focus of nyiners dot com's diner history initiative.  This page will be frequently updated with as much of the information that I have researched, over the years.  Files will not be attached due to size, but dates and general info will be included, as much as possible.  As of July 2023, the goal is to get each section of upstate New York started, and then I will go back and add more information.  Currently working on finishing up the Finger Lakes, then will go back to Rochester.
