Driving past this once busy diner, I wondered how it could still be on the market and for sale. I have dined here before and I enjoyed my experience. 

James "Murr" Murray from TruTv's, Impractical Jokers visited this Orange County, NY Diner in January of 2020.

At the time, Impractical Jokers were on tour and spent the weekend in New York City, performing at Radio City Music Hall. I wonder what brought him to the Hudson Valley and what he enjoyed at this diner. Murr is one of my favorite’s from Impractical Jokers, it would have been awesome to have met him at this fan-favorite diner.

Murr also took pictures with those who worked at this Hudson Valley diner.

The Valley Diner on Route 9W, located in the Middlehope area closed their doors. They were open for about 6 years. I had the chance to eat there. It is now for sale. However, the owners of The Valley Diner had a "new" restaurant at the time of this diner closing. Brix Gastropub is located in Marlboro, NY which is near this closed diner.

Diners are not only a staple in Hudson Valley towns, they are prominent in New York and along the East Coast. The diner culture is something that we're used to and enjoy spending not only our time in but money on for a full experience.

I have kept an eye on this diner since the announcement was made in 2022 of it closing. However, guests refer to the location with different addresses.

Although it is 5500 Rte 9W, some will claim that this is in Middlehope, Marlboro or even Newburgh, NY.

However, according to Google Maps, the true address is,

"5500 Rte 9W, Newburgh, NY 12550"

I hope that the right owners find this forgotten diner that has an ideal location in the Hudson Valley, a fascinating history of it's past and a story of how a celebrity visited.

Eat Your Way Through The Hudson Valley With The Best Ice Cream

I have always enjoyed stopping by my favorite local ice cream shops and choosing a new flavor. Whether it's a hot fudge sundae, chocolate peanut butter ice cream in a cone, or an ice cream sandwich, count me in.

The Hudson Valley has strange ice cream flavors. From lemon poppyseed to thai iced tea and barn boots, there aren't any boring flavors in our area.

A 'Premiere' Hudson Valley treat shop was expanding their space during the winter months to prepare for a busy summer season.
