4. Pearl Diner

Pearl Diner, located on 212 Pearl Street in the Financial District, looks vastly out of place next to the buildings around it. The tiny stand-alone diner has been around since the early 1960s and still serves affordable breakfast specials, burgers and homemade soup. Although it did close down for a bit after Hurricane Sandy, Pearl Diner remains a local favorite, complete with its iconic neon signage and metal bar stools. Even as the office building behind it went up in the early 1970’s, it still claimed its spot on the corner of Pearl and Fletcher Street.
