Restaurant on Second Avenue, Manhattan #general
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

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
Hope this is helpful to you,

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?
And can anyone tell me anything about the Zloczower Relief Verband and the
Mahazikei Hadat Anshei Zloczow Synagogue at 239 East Third Street in New
Toronto, Ontario Canada
