Chris... your question: "How did whoever got the location right know without surfing the web for the info?". My answer is "I NEVER searched the web to get the location right". Some people had ALREADY correctly guessed the Riverside Diner`s location to be somewhere on River Avenue, north of Yankee Stadium, but there was NO mention of the possibility of its EXACT location as being on 167th Street and River Avenue under the 167th Street elevated station. It really could have been on ANY of the four corners, although I DID guess "on or near the northwest corner" which, BY CHANCE, turned out to be the right corner (inspired by Misterl`s first guess of the photo`s location possibly being near the northwest corner of 238th Street and Broadway under the 238th street elevated station, which I had previously explained to you). I had called it a "wild" guess, but it really turned out to be a "lucky" guess! Please believe me, Chris, and I truly hope the Administration does, as well!
