the two that I know of and have eaten at are gone now the one in Saugerties NY is gone as is the one in Lake George NY. I won a Dairy Queen giftcard for $20 a while back but I could only buy Orange Jullius because the shop that did ice cream only in the same mall closed down. Now the closest Dairy Queen to me is 30 miles away in some obscure town called Ghent. Did you know that Dairy Queen is one of the only restaurants that don't have a location in New York City you have to go to New Jersey UGH

I'm guessing you mean in Crossgates (where the DQ closed - both DQ and OJ were side by side, then they opened the current OJ in a different part of the mall, then closed both the others)?

Ghent is not completely obscure - it's the home of the Columbia County Fairgrounds - usually called the Chatham Fair, but while the grounds lie in the VILLAGE of Chatham, they are in the TOWN of Ghent (just to confuse everyone, I guess).  Or at least not for those of us within the county Wink

It is, though a small town and the DQ (which has ice cream, food and added OJ recently) is the only "fast food" type place, which is probably why it sticks around.

There were others at one time - Hudson, now Davi's which is a very similar place with ice cream and food, though in between it was a pharmacy and a used car sales area being the next closest.

The other two current ones I can think of are farther down in Dutchess County - Hyde Park and Wappingers or Fishkill (never can be sure where one ends and the other begins).

Just posting this link to the Register Star about the 50th anniversary of this Dairy Queen in Ghent - the article has a photo of the building being built in 1963, showing the still existing barn shape (although it's been added on to), as well as more current photos.  It also references the other former Dairy Queen in Hudson and the next closest one in Hyde Park.

Recently, Dairy Queen has also been hit by a data breach in which malware was installed on their cash registers. It's unbelievable how common data breaches are nowadays...

This is because most of the places still use old technology. They should start upgrading their systems so this will be less likely to happen again.
 

Some of these breaches occurred in the DQ in the food court at South Hills Village Mall near Pittsburgh.
A new location only a few months old.  Apparently they installed obsolete technology?

Here's a current photo of DQ in Old Saybrook CT. Still has the old logos, and this building was built into the side of a residential home.

If you've ever experienced frustration not finding a nationally-advertised food item at your local DQ, this recent story might give you a greater appreciation of "non-system" restaurants

There is a seasonal take-out DQ on Route 10 in Plainville, CT. They remodeled the interior and exterior in-between the 2015 and 2016 operating seasons. It's near the little IGA store Gnazzo's. I don't get out that way much and if I do I never have my camera.

There is a year-round sit-down location with a drive-thru on Meriden Waterbury Turnpike in the Plantsville section of Southington.

Apparently the mild February weather in New Hampshire caught the Laconia Dairy Queen off-guard this past weekend:

Anyways, here is my closest Dairy Queen in Willimantic, CT. It's your typical retrofitted location, at night!:

The old Barn style DQ in Temple Terrace was replaced by the new style, which looks like any other fast food joint. I guess the Grill N Chill concept is the future.

Their Brazier restaurants are being phased out in favor of the Grill n Chill concept.

We have a couple locally that are the real old "walk-up" style (no inside dining). One that I drive by all the time had the old Dairy Queen/Brazier sign that was really in character with the store but it was replaced this fall with the DQ Grill-n-chill sign. Ah, progress.

Plainville, Connecticut still has one of those walk-up DQ's. It's open May-November. It's own by a family that lives here part of the year and down in Florida the rest of the year. I don't know if you can get everything there that you can get at a sit-down DQ.
