A visit to Katz’s Deli

Katz’s Deli

New York has many different places to visit but Katz’s was on the list to visit while I was there over the past weekend. It was great experience to check out while hitting up a number of location’s in NY, thanks to the knowledge of my cousin.

This one was great to photograph, lots of character, some interesting light and good food.

History of Katz’s Delicatessen from their website

‘In 1888, a small deli by the name of Iceland Brothers was established on Ludlow Street in New York’s Lower East Side by the Iceland brothers. Upon the arrival of Willy Katz in 1903, the name of the store was officially changed to “Iceland & Katz”. Willy’s cousin Benny joined him in 1910, buying out the Iceland brothers to officially form Katz’s Delicatessen. Their landsman Harry Tarowsky bought into the partnership in April 1917. Katz’s Deli was moved across the street, to its present location, during the construction of the subway system. The vacant lot on Houston Street (pronounced “House-ton” after a Dutch emigrant of the same name) was home to barrels of meat and pickles until the present storefront facade was added between 1946-49’

Enjoy the photos,
