Pearl Diner Re-opened Today
I had no idea whether the Pearl Diner had reopened yet when I headed that way, but hurrah, the lights were on, & bunches of balloons promised good news. Yes! Today was their first day back in business since Sandy struck, and the place was flooded out: seawater throughout the basement & up to a foot or more in the restaurant area. It was a nice scene today, with regulars coming back to hug the staff, & an air of happy disbelief that the diner had pulled through such tough times.
