Memories of the Carnegie Deli

We decided that we needed a "p" day so we left our apartment around 8:30am to catch the "r" train and then the "1" train to Manhattan.  Our first stop was the Manhattan Temple.  We arrived in time for the 11:00 session.  As we were waiting to begin, imagine our surprised to run into some good friends from Tempe.  Brian and Deborah Hendrickson were attorney friends who also bought a house in Chaparral Pines.  They told us they were serving a mission in New Jersey!




We decided to meet after the session and have some lunch.  Richard (and I) had fond memories of Carnegie's Deli from our previous visits to New York.  So, that is where we decided to go for lunch.  It was a short walk and we enjoyed visiting along our way.  When we turned the corner to Carnegie's we weren't the only ones thinking the same thing for lunch.

(Sure wish I could get these pictures turned the right way....sorry.)

Not sure if you can see the long line, but needless to say we had plenty of time to visit and plan what we were going to order.  Richard remembered that we use to order the Woody Allen to share....a sandwitch with both corned beef and pastromi for only $30.00.  The sandwitch is HUGE.  For an appitizer, they bring a bowl of all different kinds of dill pickles to snack on.  Here's a picture waiting for our food.

The four of us decided that we would have more "p" days together....maybe next time see a Broadway show.  We arrived home about 7:00 that night tired, but with wonderful memories of a great "p" day.

  1. How fun to run into friends who are also serving a mission!
    Carnegie Deli was also a big favorite of Mike's when we were dating. He loved the homemade pickles. That reminded me of you, Dad. Seeing as the pickles are one of their specialties, makes sense that you would love that place as well. :)
