Broome Closes Binghamton Bus Station Diner

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Broome County’s failed experiment to run a restaurant at the downtown Binghamton bus station has ended.

The Twilight Diner, which opened in May 2012, has been closed. The eatery was described as a “1930s era diner.”

County records released to a Binghamton man under a Freedom of Information Law request indicated the diner lost almost $20,000 in a seven-month period.

Broome County officials have not disclosed the total amount lost during the year-long restaurant venture.

Signs outside the diner indicate the closing is temporary and it will be “reopening soon.”

The county’s website gives no indication that the Twilight Diner is no longer open. As of Monday afternoon, it still displayed the restaurant operating hours and menus.

In February, County Executive Debra Preston announced proposals were being sought for someone to take over the business.

Preston could not be reached for comment about the new operator of the restaurant.

Preston initially said the diner would be operated as a “six-month project” before the county would seek a private operator.
