Thanks for the calories: NYC's Carnegie Deli says goodbye
First time I went there was with my wife to be Cary, in '66. This hayseed from Bend Oregon, on his first trip to NYC, had never seen anything like these sandwiches.
The last time was in 2010, with the youngest, Emily, after seeing Rent on Broadway.
Frankly, there are better delis in the city, but Carnegie's was an institution one had to pay homage at; a pastrami on rye, chocolate egg cream, and a slice of cheesecake.
