Continuing the trend on lower Sixth Avenue, The Moondance Diner, made famous by appearances in Spiderman, Igby, and Sex in the City, will soon shutter to make way for condos. The diner, along with an adjacent parking garage and lot, will be converted into a 66,734-square-foot residential building with ground floor retail by Extell's Gary Barnett. The site has already received the necessary variance to build the nine-story residential tower in an area zoned for light manufacturing. There is some good news for Moondance fans: the owner is keeping the sign and hopes to reopen in the new building's commercial space. Huzzah!
