Re: Restaurant on Second Avenue, Manhattan #general

I believe you may be referring to the Second Avenue Deli at the corner of
10th Street and Second Avenue. It is a family owned restaurant in business
about 50 years. It's web site is http://www.2ndavedeli.com/ but it's
mainly an on-line menu (they say they ship anywhere in the US!) and it
doesn't give any history. It does, however, show the image of the neon sign
adorning the restaurant's building.

The restaurant's owner since the 1950's, a man named Abe Lebewohl, was
murdered in a robbery in 1996 but I think his family still owns it. Abe was
beloved in the neighborhood and a park has been named in his memory. A
short history of Abe, the restaurant and park can be found on the NYC home
page: http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/html/dpr/html/historicsignsm_lebew.html

In the 1960s and 1970s there was a Jewish restaurant on Second Avenue in
Manhattan. It was on the east side of the street, on the corner of Tenth,
Eleventh, or Twelfth Street. I seem to recall that it was closed in the
1970s or 1980s, but I'm not certain.

Can anyone tell me exactly what it was called, what intersection it was
located at, and who the owners were and where they came from?
