According to a commenter here, in Harlem the beloved M&G Diner is being plucked by souvenir-hunting buzzards--or maybe just heartbroken lovers of the M&G.
Dave Cook of Eating in Translation tells us, "Not only has the colorful 'diner' sign been loosened, but the lettered curtain of the awning has been removed, along with most of the awning itself."

The M&G closed "for vacation" back in 2008 and never reopened.
