Don't Even Think About It!

Welcome to world famous (Where Harry Met Sally) Katz's Delicatessen! ("I'll have what she's having.") Sure, this is down the road (Houston) a piece from Greenwich Village proper, but seeing how it fits in with this blog's general theme of sadly disappearing Manhattan, it fits my bill.

This was taken inside Katz's one spring day. This waiter seems to be saying, "You want salami? You gotta go through me first." Easier to move down the line and get a nice egg cream, or one of Katz's famous pickles.

Word has it that Katz's has sold their building, fitting in nicely with the gentrification of the lower east side. Head back to the Village. We'll be there tomorrow, bright and early!

Your caption and his face matched perfectly. Interesting post about the place and the film. I realy wouldn't want to ask him twice for my order.

I gave you the answer to my cameras on my blog where you asked the question. A bit long to hang out on the line here so I put it up there.

I like your photograph. It reminds me of our old grocery store when I was a kid. Black oiled floors and all. LOL.

Yes, I thought they have moved.
Love all the salamis hanging from the ceiling! Great pose of that guy.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
