A tipster sent in these images of the original façade of the old Lillian’s Family Diner, located at the corner of S. Robinson and Dickson Street that was recently revealed. It is pretty impressive to see that this existed underneath all that brick work, and that all the ornamental (steel?) is still intact. The tipster said the owner is planning to restore, and I certainly hope so. City records say the property was built c. 1940. It’s wonderful to see the progression of development in the city through its architecture.
The future of this property could surely help improve Newburgh’s image, as it is located on one of the gateway entry streets into the city.
Does anyone know for sure what the plans are? A new restaurant perhaps? For more details, see this post on Facebook.
