As if millions of sandwiches cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced

The place where I eat half my lunches has been SEIZED BY THE GOVERNMENT. Could that sign be any more over-dramatic? It's like a movie prop.

Every time I find a place I like to eat, it closes. It happened to Roy Rogers, then Ranch 1, then Blimpie, and now Belly Delly. I'm a jinx. If you see me coming to your door, lock it up.

There were many businessmen standing outside looking confused.

    Roy Rogers and Blimpie are gone? Aw man. I have nothing to look forward to when I go back to the States now. At least Gray's Payaya is still around.

  2. Only the Blimpie and Roy Rogers by me. This path of destruction is localized around my vicinity. Though there seem to be fewer of both restaurants than there used to be in general.

  3. that's a pretty daunting sign there.

    to death of another deli. im sure another will pop up somewhere else.

  4. corner delis are a dime a dozen in NYC, but it's not as easy as you'd think to find one that won't kill you! Or at least send you convulsing to the bathroom for the next five hours.

    This place was clean and fresh and good. I'm pretty upset about this!


About This Blog

This is increasingly not a blog about Alphabet City, New York. I used to live in the East Village and work on Avenue B, but I no longer do. Why don't I change the name if I'm writing about Japan and video games and guitars? Because New Yorkers are well-rounded people with varied interests, and mine have gone increasingly off the rails over the years. And I don't feel like changing the name. I do still write about New York City sometimes.
