There was a fruit and vegetable store in the "old days" before the supermarkets as well as a fish store on that side of the street near the meatmarket. There was also a candy store near the Greater New York Savings bank and a luncheonette called "Irvings" on the corner of Church and east 5th.

And of course the "Chinese restaurant" was Nom Tong Tea Garden with the best tomato egg drop soup on the planet....by the way, does anyone still have tomato egg drop soup on the menu?

After my wish of having the German Deli turkey and meunster cheese hero, I wish I had a Nom Tong egg roll right now followed by dessert at Benny's and Izzy's with a chocolate egg cream and a few chocolate covered raspberry jelly rings!

I remember Sauls as being more appetizing than meats...the candy store was Irvings and then Abes. Anyone remember Ralph's record shop? He was a real charachter..then came Mario at Cow Tree.
