The Sunset Diner's Slow Demise

It's hard to imagine from looking at this photo, but up until about a year ago this was the bustling counter section of the Rockaway Sunset Diner. The new owners, Wharton Realty of Manhattan, recently consolidated their mortgage on the property and a representative from HSBC bank told The Wave last year that the diner will one day be a branch location, but no building applications have been applied for, according to Department of Buildings records. Meanwhile, the building's HVAC units have been removed from the roof, and about two inches of water was covering the floor when The Wave took this picture recently.
