George Blecher begins his article, “More Than Coffee: New York’s Vanishing Diner Culture” by telling us that diners are the third important place in his life after home and workplace, he calls it his “third place”.
His article was published in The New York Times in 2016. In the article we get in-formed that a lot of diners in America are closing down due to new and more modern coffee places
like Starbucks, the substantial increase in rent, and changes in peoples eating habits. Bleacher then explained that restaurants are places to build networks and are particularly beneficial to the elderly and poor.
