Misterl... If the Riverside Diner`s location in the photo was somewhere on River Avenue, north of the old Yankee Stadium and the 161st Street elevated subway station, then the ONLY other elevated station above River Avenue would be 167th Street which could be partially seen in the photo`s foreground with the diner below it. River Avenue merges into Jerome Avenue at about 169th Street followed by all the rest of the #4 train elevated stations continuing north above Jerome Avenue toward Woodlawn.
I agree with you that the name "Riverside" could very well be related to the street that it is on, although I am still voting for your first guess of West 238th Street and Broadway as the photo`s location. The Riverdale Diner today, on Kingsbridge Avenue, obviously is NOT in Riverdale. It should have been called "The Kingsbridge Diner"! When you mentioned the location of the RiverSIDE Diner as possibly being on 238th Street and Broadway, I couldn`t help but think that it was at least ONE of the reasons why The RiverDALE Diner, SO CLOSE to that intersection, got its name.
