I don't see the reason for needing to cite this sentence: "The trademark "Tom's Restaurant" marquee still exists above the exterior windows.". This is simply a fact, (ie. the marequee does still exist). What kind of citation could one use? A recent photograph of the resturuant? (I have one). I just think it is silly to give a citation for this. It'd be like needing to cite whether or not the Empire State Building still exists. I have removed the request for a citation. If anyone disagrees, let me know. I also can upload a recent photo of the marquee, however, the only one I have ATM is one where I am in the picture.
- 1) Is there an article about the other diner? 2) Is the other diner noteworthy enough to be included in a Wikipedia entry? The reason this diner has been singled out as having a wikipedia entry is because of its association with Seinfeld, along with its association with the song Tom's Diner, not because of how long it has been open. Unless there is some special history behind the other restaurant, or something as notable, I don't see why there would even need to be a page for it. Liontamarin 12:51, 3 August 2007 (UTC)
- Why not, whats with all the "article police" lately judging what does and doesn't deserve an article. I see worthy articles deleted all the time, while completely worthless articles aren't noticed. 126.96.36.199 02:47, 15 September 2007 (UTC)
- Article subjects need to be proven notable by reliable outside sources. It has nothing to do with personal judgment. In this case the diner in question was featured heavily in two popular aspects of pop culture and has been discussed in varying media because of such. If the other Tom's Diner has received significant discussion then it deserves a page, if it hasn't then it doesn't and there's no need to make a disambiguation page. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 01:49, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
I changed the part that said "primarily frequented" to "often frequented", because there are no statistics that the great majority of the patrons of this diner are affiliates of Columbia University (I'm sure there are many tourists that dine here also) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:59, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
I removed the "Advertisement" marker because, for the life of me, I can't figure out why it was there, and there is no mention of why here. The article says nothing about the food, the atmosphere, the prices. Just how old it is, who owns it, and its use in pop culture. Carlo (talk) 20:53, 5 March 2009 (UTC)
The article states that this (tom's) diner is located on 112th street. the article then goes on to state "The interior, however, looked very little like the fictional "Monk's", as indoor scenes were filmed on a set in California resembling the Broadway diner between 101st and 102nd Streets."
