Last night under the cover of darkness, shuttered Hell's Kitchen local landmark the Cheyenne Diner was thrown onto flatbeds and carted off toward Alabama, where the classic railcar-inspired diner will live out its days cursing Red Hook.

Finally, a basement with good natural light! Click through the gallery for more destruction, as well as a flashback to a slice of Manhattan Americana.
