The Roscoe Diner, located in the hamlet of Roscoe in Sullivan County, New York is a frequent stopping point for those traveling Route 17 between New York City and Western New York. It was built in 1964 and is considered to be one of the busiest and most well known restaurants along Route 17.[1] Although Roscoe is a small town with a population of less than 600 at the time of the 2000 census, the diner served anywhere between several hundred and a thousand meals each day at its peak[2] although numbers have declined in recent years due to a decline in trout fishing, the region's main draw.[3] 2006 floods in the region came close but did not damage the diner. One of the diner's specialties is its famous French Toast, featuring generous slabs of bread that are 1.5" thick.[4]

[edit] Notoriety

During the 2010 NFL Preseason, the Roscoe Diner was the site of several negotiation meetings between the management of the New York Jets and the representatives of Darrelle Revis during Revis' holdout from the club due to a contract dispute. The prologue and outcome of the meetings were chronicled on the HBO documentary series Hard Knocks: Training Camp With The New York Jets. Revis ended his holdout and signed with the Jets on September 6, 2010.[5]

Who-hooooo we ate at the famous diner quite by accident!

We are now in Florida, New York for three nights. Going to go to Long Island on Saturday if we hear back from the Dept of Transportation regarding our size. Our width and length are a concern traveling on New York bridges. We know we are not allowed on "parkways" totally.
