The Mayor of the New Jersey Historic Village is proud to announce the addition to the wonderful collection that honors and celebrated the areas local history. After a statewide battle, the legendary Broad Street Diner in Keyport takes the prize to showcase the entire Jersey Diner community.

New Jersey's diner history began July 3, 1912, the Jerry O’Mahoney Diner opened near Jersey City, New Jersey while his diner manufacturing business in Elizabeth made over 2000 mobile eateries from 1917 to 1952 that fed hungry Americans from coast to coast.
The silver railcar style and neon signs of the classic American diner still brighten New Jersey's highways and Main Streets. Everyone has a favorite diner and a favorite diner story. Whether it's a Happy Waitress Special, Cheeseburger Platter, or a three egg omelet with regular coffee, Jerseyans know they are in the state's ultimate happy place. And the “daily special” gives something for everyone for any moment, high school students, retirees, construction workers and crossing guards might be found at a counter chatting with the waitresses and line cooks. Or you take a booth and engage the table jukebox, Jerseyans yearn for lost favorites like the Excellent, Lido or Rosie's Diner and still gather at the beloved Bendix, Tick Tock, OB, Summit, Park West and yes the Broad Street Diner in Keyport, voted New Jersey's Most Iconic Diner.

Sent this package to my brother for his birthday. He loved it! Now I'm ordering one for myself. We both have such happy memories of growing up in Westfield.
