White Mana470 Tonnele AvenueJersey City, New Jersey
The fabulous, futuristic Art Deco White Mana Diner was built by Paramount Diners of Oakland, New Jersey and featured as the “diner of the future” at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. It was purchased by Louis Bridges and brought to Jersey City, where it opened on June 2, 1946, as the White Manna Diner. Bridges eventually owned five White Manna diners in New Jersey, including the White Manna still in operation in Hackensack, New Jersey. The transition of the name from “White Manna” to “White Mana” was apparently the result of an error by by the sign maker, or in sign maintenance.
