The late owner of the abandoned Pizza World, also owned another restaurant, though this one will be remembered forever. The Rosedale Diner which had been sitting across the street from Pizza World, caught the eyes of two upcoming musicians. Daryl Hall, a Pottstown native, and John Oates approached the owner about granting permission to photograph the diner which had sat defunct since the mid 1960's. The owner verbally agreed for an autographed first album fresh off the presses.
In 1973 Hall & Oates released the album "Abandoned Luncheonette", featuring one of their most recognized hits "She's Gone." The Rosedale Diner remained in it's dilapidated state until 1983 when it was eventually scrapped. During that 10 year frame it became a hallowed ground for Hall & Oates souvenir hunters. Some debris from the old diner can still be found near the towpath park on Route 724.
