Murray Klein, a co-owner of Zabar's, died yesterday at the age of 84: "After arriving in New York, Mr. Klein cleaned floors and sorted soda bottles at one of the stores owned by Louis Zabar, who had founded Zabar’s in 1934 and who died in 1950. Mr. Klein left briefly to open his own hardware store. In 1953, he was asked to return, and he was made a partner several years later." [City Room via Cutlets]
