Katz Deli


Another New York landmark in jeopardy of going down. The great Katz deli on Houston street. The famous Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal fake orgasm scene was filmed there. Also it's where the "send a salami to your boy in the army" originated. It was always a great place to get a late night hot dog. The place was always jammed. I'm sure anyone who came to New York as a tourist was told to go there. I had to draw it before it disappears in front of my eyes.

Why are they getting rid of it?

Tommy Kane said...

Same reason they got rid of 2nd avenue deli and coney island. Progress.

HA! Progress...
They ought to make a museum out of it.

Loved pastrami at Katz´s! one of the best experiences during my first visit to NY in October 2008. Wish to come back once, so what about your petition right New Yorkers?

Nothing can stay the same. Time marches on, unfortunately.

Can't believe it's going away.

How funny about the salami. I never heard that one before.
