We were just at the Second Avenue Deli last Sunday on the corner of 2nd Ave
and either 9th or 10th St. It is wonderful. There were no other Jewish
type eateries along that block. One of the owners was shot and killed
during a bank run about 2 or 3 years ago. His name is now part of the
marquee but I can't bring it to mind.
I am sure that back in the 70's there may have been a few other eateries
there. On 2nd, about 3 blocks south is the B&H Dairy Luncheonette and Kiev
on 2nd and 7th which is not kosher but very good east European Polish,
Hungarian, Yiddish type food.
Hope this helps
