In less than an hour, NYC's 7th Avenue location of Carnegie Deli will close forever after 80 years in business.
I ate there the Springs of my freshman, sophomore, and junior years in college, as well as several times during my years in DC.
The go-to was matzah ball soup and some sort of gargantuan sandwich, followed by a piece of their Hershey's Fifth Avenue Chocolate Cheesecake.
That meal could kill you, but it would have been a good and tasty death.
I can only hope that the Deli's own end is just as delicious.
