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  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. 🙂
