    It’s great that you got those pics. I was always more into the smoked meat from Schwartz’s, but out-of-towners always wanted to be brought to Ben’s.. I was always impressed that a 2 story building had survived amongst all the skyscrapers.. Guess there’ll be another scraper there soon enough..

    Yeah, that place was EXPENSIVE and the quality had nothing on Schwartz, the Main, or even Reubens. Still, it was a time warp, and that’s what was great about it. There is a move afoot to protect the building, but my guess is the owners thanked their lucky starts for the strike, and said, sweet: a perfect opportunity to sell to developers, and we won’t even look like the bad guys.
