Am I off base in thinking the diner in this eposode (Starstruck Diner) is a nod to the Tick Tock diner at the New Yorker Hotel in NYC?

I've been going nuts trying to pin this down, and I have to say this looks the closest I've seen so far. I'd say you found the source, or it's at least partly based on this place.

To show how OCD I was I took some screengrabs from the flashback scene, and in one shot looking over Red Death's shoulder, you can see street signs on a pole outside the window on the left. The sign facing left says W 128th St. and the one on the right (perpendicular to the street they're on) says 10th St. I went on Google Earth and found the intersection. At first, I saw nothing that looked like a diner, but then noticed on one street corner was one of those fences they put up when doing construction or demolition. I went to street view and you can see that a small building had been torn down and could even see where it has been connected to the larger building next door. If there were a diner there, and you were sitting in the same booth the street signs would appear exactly as they were in the flashback.

I'm not really familiar with NYC, so I wonder what had stood there? Any straphangers out there?

Extra easter egg: they have the disco fries (whatever they are) from "Return to Spider Skull Island"!
