A sad sight on Central Avenue... all that’s left of the Mont Parnasse Diner is a pile of rubble. I’ve got memories of omelettes, french toast, grilled cheese sandwiches and jello with whipped cream. It was an old-time, expansive eatery, with leather banquettes, tall cakes buried in icing and juke boxes on each table. I am sure you have fond recollections as well. George McGuire of the State Contracting Co., was on hand to do the demolition and hauled away over 200 tons of rubble. What will be built in it’s place? I bet you already guessed! Another bank? No, it’s Walgreens. A new 11,000 square foot drugstore will be built to open in 2010.
