THE CONEY ISLAND
10 Old Stagecoach Rd, Bailey, CO, USA
The diner was sold in 1970 and the new owners moved it to Aspen Park, CO. The diner was sold again in 1999 to Ron Aigner for a reputed $150,000. In 2006 the diner was relocated to its current location in Bailey, CO. The blogger ColoradoRick has an excellent series of photographs recording the 2006 move here.
Thomas J. Noel, Professor of History at the University of Colorado in Denver suggested in his book "Buildings Of Colorado" that the diner was:
"the best example of roadside architecture in the state."
In January 2011 the diner was put up for sale; we are unsure as to whether it sold or not but the listing for the sale is now gone. According to denverpost.com it appears that the owner had a little trouble with local law enforcement and with $15,000 in legal bills and slow winter sales was ready to get out. He put the diner on the market for $499,000.
