Vintage Diner In NJ Available For Free

Posted: Updated:
TRENTON, N.J. -

The great American diner once covered the landscape. Now you too can have your own piece of American history for free.

Holtz says: "What we want to do is find somebody who is going to redevelop it, use it again. It's a win -win for us to find a new home and for a piece of our history."

The William Holtz Development Group purchased property for a new McDonald's, Wawa and TD Bank to be built.

Holtz says: "It's a high traffic area and these are good high traffic uses."

The owner say the diner has been on the market for decades before it was taken off the market twenty years ago.

Schaeffer says: "It's a metropolitan diner and it was built for a diner on Calhoun Street in Trenton and it was moved in the 60's."

The diner used to be a popular place. It was a truck stop where truckers would stop and eat. And believe it or not people actually collect diners.

Schaeffer says:  "If you go and you Google diners you will see a whole world of people who love diners."

So if you'd like to have the vintage diner for free and pay for its removal developer Bill Hotz welcomes inquiries at hotzdevgrp@aol.com.
