That’s when I knew I would never have come back from Florida alive.

I do not drive to work often.  On balance it is less than once a week.  But when I do drive, I usually pass by this diner on the road you see in the background when coming home.  So it was a bit of a surprise to discover when doing some basic research to write a post about this diner, to discover that it was featured in Goodfellas.  I had no idea, and still cannot recognize it, even though I have seen the movie a few dozen times.

This was taken this morning.  I meant to get out a bit earlier, and might have to come back to this spot when it is darker.  It was also cold, and I need to get a pair of those photographer’s gloves that allow you to poke your fingertips through the ends.

UPDATE: As i note in the comments, this diner is the one where Jimmy and Henry learn that Tommy has been killed instead elevated to a made man.  It is also, I believe the diner in this scene with the quote that acts as the title for this entry.

  1. Is that the one where Deniro etc are all sitting in before getting whacked towards the end? I’m trying to remember but cool photo Mark.

  2. I did a bit more research and apparently it’s the one where Jimmy and Henry eat while Tommy is supposedly getting made but actually gets killed.
