the diner could be better, but id rather it be a diner than another pharmacy. theres literally 3 pharmaciess within a quarter mile of that site.

the area def needs better eateries in general so losing any, even if not the best, is a loss.

my thoughts though are that as JSQ grows, this site will get gobbled up. its close to the PATH and a relatively large lot. but hopefully they utilize the full site and dont waste it with a giant parking lot.

the last few times that I have been there, they had new menus and I think I saw a placard that they are now affiliated with the Manalapan and Milburn Diners. Always have liked it. Large, never too crowded, conveniently located by buses and PATH, and plenty of parking, and free sugar cookies by the register.

(I think there is a thread on JCList about the VIP/Walgreens deal. If you didn’t know the story back in 2010 they wanted to build a one story Walgreens. The city said it had to be 4 stories. Don’t know what happened after it was denied.)

Walgreens applies to tear down iconic VIP Diner in Jersey City

Walgreens has applied to put a drug store at the site of Journal Square's VIP diner.
The national pharmacy chain filed an application with the Jersey City Planning Board in May to tear down Journal Square's only 24-hour diner. But because they're asking for six variances - including putting in a new one-story building with 22 parking spaces instead of a four-story structure that covers the entire lot - it's unclear whether the project will be approved. The board may vote on it as soon as Aug. 17.
