The Independent Press and New Jersey On-Line posted an article about the recent grant to the American Red Cross from the Other Fellow First Foundation. Jim Greberis is a trustee for the foundation which is headquartered at the Summit Diner.

In these tough economic times, it's good to read about these acts of generosity.

The diner has been in the Greberis family since 1964 and is an example of a late 1930's O'Mahony. Many pictures of the Summit Diner were found on flickr, including some interior shots of the diner. Notice the counter's orange tile stripe which was an O'Mahony feature in the late 1930's. Several of their "Monarch" models also include this feature. According to Richard J. S. Gutman, noted diner expert and author several books on the subject, including "American Diner, Then and Now," told us this counter tile stripe feature was originated by O'Mahony and copied by the Worcester Lunch Car Company.
