Say Goodbye to the Stage Deli,
a Midtown Staple Since 1937

New York Times, by Florence Fabricant

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/30/2012 8:34:29 PM

At midnight on Thursday, the Stage Deli, a landmark New York institution that got its start 75 years ago, closed its doors. “It’s a sad day for New York,” said Paul Zolenge, who has owned the deli, on Seventh Avenue near 54th Street, with Steve Auerbach for 26 years. “We’ve been struggling to make it through these hard times.” Mr. Zolenge cited the cost of doing business in New York. The landlord erected scaffolding in front of the restaurant a year ago, he said, and even though it came down in September, “we lost a whole year.”

It is so hard to find a good deli anymore. How do you know you found a good one? They still sell REAL roast beef--not the stuff full of preservatives.

I know others have their preferences but I thought the Stage Deli was the best midtown deli when I used to work in midtown Manhattan. This is very sad.

To hear Mayor Blooming-idiot tell the tale.......all´s well in NY. Business is booming, hardly any unoccupied apartments, blah blah blah.

Never mind that Wall St. has been decimated by Obama and his handmaiden, Bloomers.

So right #4. Here in the Seattle area the only place I can find it is when I roast it myself. Other complaint, where can I find ham that is not full of water and other liquids. So sad for these guys. I´ll bet they put their heart and soul into their Deli.

A lot of business were waiting to see if conditions might improve. On November 6 they got their answer. The trick now is to get out before losing any more money.

Just had a corned beef sammich there Tuesday.

About three months ago they stopped accepting credit cards and had gone to a cash only business.

Darn shame, loved their pastrami and corned beef.

Also really feel for the staff who had worked there for decades - many into their 70s.

They spied on you. They lied to the Senate. They seized telephone records from The Associated Press and considered criminalizing investigative journalism at Fox News. What else can the U.S. intelligence community do to destroy its credibility, curb civil liberties, and ultimately undermine U.S. security? Spy on Congress. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat bravely challenging a Democratic White House, accused the CIA of searching computer files used by her staffers on the Senate Intelligence Committee to review the CIA´s now-defunct interrogation programs, potentially violating: The constitutionally sacred principle of separation of powers, which prohibits one branch of government (say, a runaway executive branch)

It began hundreds of years ago, deep in the Albanian Alps—an unusual tradition where women, with limited options in life, took the oath of the burrnesha. A pledge to live as a man. To dress like a man, to work like a man, to assume the burdens and the liberties of a man. But these freedoms came with a price: The burrneshas also made a pledge of lifelong celibacy. Today these sworn virgins live on, but their numbers have dwindled. Many Albanians don´t even know they exist. What happens when the society that created you no longer needs you? And

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) sat down for an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl following his speech at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), and from the beginning was met with a barrage of questions over his outspoken criticism of President Obama. The interview, which aired on Sunday’s This Week w/ George Stephanopoulos, featured a myriad of topics including repealing ObamaCare. During the segment, Senator Cruz mocked how the “media treats that as a bizarre proposition” to which Karl laughed and asserted “it is because he’s not going to sign it. It is a bizarre proposition.” [See video

In a rare rift between two close allies, the usually discreet United Arab Emirates has gone public over its exasperation with the State Department. Since 9/11, one of America’s closest allies in the Middle East has been the federation of seven sheikdoms known as the United Arab Emirates. Wedged between Iran and Saudi Arabia this wealthy country does $27 billion a year in trade with the United States and has modernized its military with American arms. This close alliance is now straining after a rare outburst from the UAE. The dispute centers on a single paragraph in the State Department’s annual human

“With hindsight, I know Adam would have killed me in a heartbeat, if he’d had the chance,” Peter Lanza said in a series of interviews for the March 17 issue of the New Yorker magazine. The piece, “The Reckoning: The Father of the Sandy Hook Killer Searches for Answers” by Andrew Solomon, is a powerful narrative of the family’s troubles. It’s the first time Peter Lanza has spoken publicly about his son. “It was crystal clear something was wrong,” the article quotes the father as saying. “The social awkwardness, the uncomfortable anxiety, unable to sleep, stress, unable to concentrate, having

Investigators suspect a vanished Malaysian airliner may have been blown out of the sky — just like the jumbo jet that rained deadly wreckage onto Lockerbie, Scotland, in 1988. As Vietnam reported the possible sighting of an aircraft door from the missing plane, a senior official involved in the probe of its disappearance said the evidence so far “appears to indicate that the aircraft is likely to have disintegrated at around 35,000 feet,” Reuters reported. Asked if that suggested a bomb blew up the Boeing 777, the source said there was no evidence yet of foul play, but noted the closest parallels

In the last two months, there has been a rash of suicides and mysterious deaths sweeping the world of high finance. JPMorgan has been hardest hit, with three untimely deaths in just the last few weeks, and last week Autumn Radtke (left), a 28-year-old CEO of First Meta, a small cyber-currency exchange, jumped to her death in Singapore. Historically, suicide rates rise during times of financial stress and economic downturns. Now, though stocks are at or near all-time highs, for many Wall Street bankers these are times of setbacks and stress. Today’s bankers are not a settled, comfortable bunch anymore. A day doesn’t

1. What happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370? With 239 people aboard, the plane lost contact with air-traffic controllers shortly into the flight early Saturday. Cruising at roughly 35,000 feet, the plane was traversing the South China Sea less than an hour after takeoff when Malaysian controllers lost touch and the pilots failed to report to Vietnamese controllers along their anticipated path, according to data provided by the carrier and authorities from both countries.

NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. — Texas Gov. Rick Perry delivered one of the best-received speeches so far at the Conservative Political Action Conference, bringing the audience to its feet and eliciting loud cheers Friday morning as he outlined a small-government vision and praised the accomplishments of fellow Republican governors. Perry, whose 2012 presidential campaign crumbled amid a series of missteps — including the infamous “oops” moment, in which he forgot one of the three federal agencies he wanted to abolish — is weighing another go-round in 2016, and his allies insist that this time, the campaign would go differently.

Armed men thought to be Russian have seized a Ukrainian military base in the Crimean city of Sevastopol. A Reuters news agency journalist said no shots were fired and negotiations between the two sides were going on. Interfax-Ukraine earlier reported that about 100 Ukrainian servicemen had been deployed at the base before the raid. Troops wearing Russian uniform without insignia and their supporters have blockaded bases in Crimea since taking control of the peninsula last week.

Last month, President Obama took an action making it easier for supporters of Islamist terrorists to be granted asylum in this country. At the same time, persecuted Christians face a brick wall at the Obama State Department in their efforts to secure refugee status, and a report this week reveals Israeli officials are now finding it more difficult to get simple visitor visas or to even renew existing visas. Why is all of this suddenly emerging? After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, none of us ever imagined a dozen years later we’d be negotiating with the Taliban in Afghanistan, supplying aid

The 300,000-member union that was the first to endorse then-Senator Barack Obama has released a devastating Obamacare report that says Obama´s controversial healthcare program will slash worker wages by up to $5 an hour, reduce worker hours, and exacerbate income inequality.

CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson has reached an agreement to resign from CBS News ahead of contract, bringing an end to months of hard-fought negotiations, sources familiar with her departure told POLITICO on Monday. Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network´s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network´s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her reporting on air.

The annual D.C. roast is hosted by the exclusive Gridiron Club, which is composed of D.C.´s mainstream and "elite" journalists. Cruz has degrees from Princeton and Harvard, which those in the permanent political class covet, and he can do their social rituals better than they can.

You have probably seen all of the ridiculous speculating about the GOP nomination in 2016. This is still speculating, but my sincere hope is you don’t think it’s ridiculous too. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is laying the foundation for his presidential bid in concrete and steel. First, forget about Jeb Bush unless you want to hand Hillary eight years in the White House. The latest Rasmussen poll shows her leading Jeb in a general election 47 percent to 33. His name is Bush and to the general public the specifics of how smart he is doesn’t matter one iota. Then there’s Ted Cruz,

Virgin CEO Richard Branson said that those who are skeptical of man-made global warming should “get out of our way,” joining the ranks of CEOs lashing out against those opposed to business investments in “sustainability.” Branson made his remarks in the wake of Apple CEO Tim Cook’s telling global warming skeptics to “get out of this stock” if they did not agree with the company’s green investment strategy. Cook made his comments after being confronted by a free-market activist who pressed him on putting the environment ahead of profitable investments. “If you want me to do things only for [return on investment] reasons,

Former Arkansas governor and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said that donors are rushing him with offers of big-dollar support, clearing away his highest hurdle to entering the 2016 GOP primaries. The biggest difference between 2008 and this year, he said, is that supporters and well-financed contributors are urging him to run and pledging to fund his effort. One of the main reasons why: He has the best knowledge of the Clinton campaign machine, knows Bill and Hillary Clinton and their tactics well, and has run and won against two female candidates. “I certainly know the Clintons; I know
