New York’s Stage Deli to Close After 75 Years

November 30, 2012

One of the most famous Broadway delis is about to shut its doors after 75 years in business.

Are we to believe this has nothing to do with Obamacare?

The famous Stage Deli in Manhattan has closed. Visitors on Friday were greeted with a hand-written sign on the door that said “Thanks for 75 years!”

The deli, on Seventh Avenue near 54th Street, got its start 75 years ago. It was known for overstuffed sandwiches named for celebrities.

It was popular with Broadway audiences.

Co-owner Paul Zolenge says the dining landmark had been struggling for some time.

He told The New York Times that yet another rent increase was expected when the lease ended in a few months.

Yeah, rent…. right.

Anyone want to take bets that a majority of the Stage Deli’s customers voted for Obama?

Own it, suckers.
