west taghkonic diner

A week or so ago Mr Weiss and I hightailed it back to NYC via the Taconic State Parkway, in an effort to avoid the masses on 87, what a pretty drive, what a mighty fine diner we stopped at for some good ole fashioned food.

good ole condiment section

clam chowder which was fantastic…

cheeseburger and fries for you know who!


someone’s enjoying his lunch.

So if you find yourself busting along the Taconic and hungry, I highly recommend making a beeline here.

    Nate, Ned, Nate’s Mother Mrs. Weiss, Liz and myself stopped for lunch here on our drive to EWR for our flight to Drew University’s London semester in the fall of the Berlin Wall. Only two more words to describe the experience. Classic and A-mazinglynummy.

    Tanks for the memory.

    Everybody Dance Now!

    The music video for “Spoiled”, directed by Joseph Kahn, was filmed on location at the West Taghkanic Diner, a roadside diner located at the junctions of the Taconic Parkway and Route 82 in West Taghkanic, New York, in February 2005.[1] It opens with Stone and her boyfriend (played by model James Guardino) arriving at the diner at night in different cars. After getting out of their cars, the couple starts to have an argument.

    I love the taconic state parkway, so beautiful, and the appalachian train passes right over (through?) it. for some reason that always made me happy to see hikers crossing it.
