Frost Diner

-A A +A
1955, Jerry O'Mahony Diner Co. U.S. Business 29 (west of downtown)

Stainless steel by day and neon by night, the Frost is an excellent example of the Bayonne, New Jersey, diner company's motto: “In our line we lead the world.” Originally outfitted with its own postcards and matching menus, the diner features an interior with a full stainless steel back bar with diamond flourishes and a salmon-pink Formica counter.
