Jimmy's Diner was originally called the Centennial Diner located in Atlantic City, N.J. This excellent example of a 1952 Mountain View Diner was in fairly good and original condition  when purchased. Unfortunately after the rigging company from hell did their job those positive aspects changed very much for the worst. While last known as Lu Chi's (a typically converted Diner into Chinese restaurant) it operated until just a few weeks before it's sale.
