Gitlitz Kosher Restaurant/Deli

25 April, 2003. Manhattan, 77th Street and Broadway (NW corner). When the Duane-Reade Pharmacy at this corner closed they took their sign with them, revealing an occupant from the era before chain stores and franchises had a significant presence in New York. Several passersby recalled that Gitlitz, a family-run kosher restaurant/deli, had been in business "forever," finally closing in the early 1970's.
