Carnegie Deli

Where do you go in Manhattan to feed two teenage boys? Well Carnegie Deli of course. Now this isn’t you’re run of the mill deli; it’s not for the faint of heart because all their sandwiches have at least a pound of meat in them. If you find yourself in NYC ย head to Carnegie Deli and have the pastrami sandwich, you won’t be disappointed. Oh and if you have room get a slice of Strawberry cheesecake. Never mind…you won’t have room but get the cheesecake anyway.

I grabbed this shot while waiting in line to get in. After some adjustments in Photoshop I processed this with Topaz Simplify. Topaz Labs is having a 50% off promotion on Topaz Simplify until the end of February. You can check it out here.

    • LOL…nope I couldn’t. I shared mine with my husband and then had a slice of strawberry cheesecake. My sons did eat their own sandwich though.

    Great shot image of this Manhattan icon. I have eaten there too many times and probably aded a few pounds to the waistline (but well worth it).

  6. Does sound like a great place to grab a super sized deli sandwich. Cool photo as well. I like the angle, hot dog yellow and red colors, and your final finish in Topaz Simplify. Thanks for sharing and more a bit of motivation in my own photo work.

  8. How lovely. Nothing like a good deli and always good to be served up a teenage boy sized sandwich to enjoy and to have someone to share it with.. I remember being that hungry. I’m not sure how my parents managed to afford the huge amount of food four teenage boys used to consume on a daily basis. ๐Ÿ™‚
