EaterWire AM Edition: Moondance Diner Isn't Going Anywhere Just Yet

SOHO—The Moondance Diner, which yesterday was supposed to be lifted onto a flatbed truck for transport to Wyoming (to avoid a wrecking ball), is still planted firmly on Sixth Avenue and Grand Street. The holdup is due to a request from the NYC Buildings Department for a "clarification" on owner Vincent Pierce's moving plans. From the Daily News: Plans to truck the SoHo eatery to the oil-field town of LaBarge, Wyo., were put off for at least 24 hours yesterday after the city requested additional information from the diner owners. "Disappointed - I don't know. It's frustrating," said Vincent Pierce, who bought the 74-year-old eatery at Sixth Ave. and Grand St. on the Internet for $7,500 with the intention of moving it to LaBarge...A city Buildings Department spokesman said it wants a "clarification" from the new owner explaining how he plans to move the diner and demolish the foundation."
