    Recent trip to the Big Apple

    Some pics taken in NYC.
    I had no idea my wife had a thing for men in uniform.
    I always wanted to eat a pastrami sandwich. There is a Deli in LA whose Pastrami sandwich is very famous but due to a religious dietary restriction I cannot eat it. Since I can eat Kosher as well, I decided to go to the 2nd Avenue deli in NYC which is Kosher and is famous for their Pastrami sandwich. All I can say is Wow! That was one of the best sandwiches I ever ate.

    Pictures of furniture and wood ceiling were taken at the Metropolitan museum. Furniture is early American.

    No Allen, didn't get a chance to have pizza. I am not too crazy about pizzas. Maybe next time.

    Larry, we were there for 3 days and we wanted to cover all the major tourist spots. In other words, we were on a tight schedule. I did talk to Allen via PM while we were in NYC. It turned out that he was busy due to other commitments and wasn't feeling good because of a bad back.

    Very cool, Mohammad. I'd love a chance to check out the Metropolitan Museum. That chamber pot chair must have been fun to keep clean.

    I'm kind of surprised you've not been able to find a kosher deli in LA that has pastrami. There might be something here that fits the bill. Or maybe just have a talk with your buddies at the Halal restaurant you took me to.

    I thought the same thing about the pot chair. There are Kosher delis in LA but their Pastrami sandwich is not very famous. Langer's deli in LA is very famous for pastrami but they are not Kosher.

    mohammad, you arent fond of pizza because you live on the wrong side of the country.
    Anywhere out of nyc limits there is no pizza, its just dough with sauce.
