“Lease Dispute With Landlord Closes Second Avenue Deli”: The Second Avenue Deli, a neighborhood institution in the East Village since 1954, has shut down and may have to close permanently. This is really frustrating. I really enjoy the Second Avenue Deli and was planning to go there on Saturday afternoon (my birthday) for lunch. Stupid increasing New York City rents. They had the best corned beef and pastrami in town, not to mention tongue sandwiches. (Tongue, the meat that tastes you back.*)
*Thank you for the joke, James.
