On Wednesday, supporters came out in droves and waited in a line that went out the door to savor six-inch-thick corned beef and pastrami sandwiches, brisket, potato pancakes, matzo-ball soup and other longtime favorites.
So cool! Even a few famous people showed their support on social media. Be sure to support your favorite local business!
