State Diner reopens

The City of Ithaca welcomed back an institution this morning, as the State Diner officially re-opened its doors after a seven month closure.

In October of 2012, an electrical malfunction caused a fire in the ceiling, leaving the interior of the diner damaged and blackened by smoke.

Starting Monday, the diner, which has been in operation since 1936, will resume its 24 hour service.
