“I  remember old time Jewish Eateries in the 1950’s in  New York  City, One was a  Kosher fast food place called “The Kishka King”which specialized in Kishka (Stuffed Derma 10  inch Hot dogs and Charlotte Russes, on Pitkin Ave in Brownsville  B’klyn another was Weiss’s Hot Dogs on Cross bay Blvd, before the Far Rockaway toll bridge,  in Manhattan there was Glucksterns and Pollacks  thou not delicatessens but  fancy kosher restaurant, As Dubrows on  Eastern Pkwy in Crown Heights ,Concord and Famous all cafeteria style  eateries(They each gave you a coupon just like Katz Delicatessen Did by punching a hole in that coupon for what you Just purchased ) Ratners dairy Resturant in Manhattan.I read that in a time frame from 1950 -1970 there were  750 Kosher Delis in Brooklyn and the Bronx alone , Katz Deli thou not Kosher is still around it remains sort of the like last of the Mohegans\

One provision company started to acquire all the brands of Jewish provisions raising the price so high as to making it out of range for the working mans lunch or family supper spot,in addition  most of the Jews moved out of the old neighborhoods as   the demographics changed and the new  influx of people didn’t have  a taste for  Jewish Cuisine.Dubrows became a hang out for old Jewish Men who would sit and drink coffee for hours and bullshit and buy nothing else. I wish these places were  still around today…Like  the Arthur Godfrey song ” I’d give  a million tomorrow s  for just one yesterday.end]
