I do not drive to work often. On balance it is less than once a week. But when I do drive, I usually pass by this diner on the road you see in the background when coming home. So it was a bit of a surprise to discover when doing some basic research to write a post about this diner, to discover that it was featured in Goodfellas. I had no idea, and still cannot recognize it, even though I have seen the movie a few dozen times.
This was taken this morning. I meant to get out a bit earlier, and might have to come back to this spot when it is darker. It was also cold, and I need to get a pair of those photographer’s gloves that allow you to poke your fingertips through the ends.
UPDATE: As i note in the comments, this diner is the one where Jimmy and Henry learn that Tommy has been killed instead elevated to a made man. It is also, I believe the diner in this scene with the quote that acts as the title for this entry.
