Next week marks a new era of Eater. So all this week, we're celebrating Eater 1.0 by republishing some favorite pieces from the vault. Ahead: the 2006 dismantling of 2nd Avenue Deli.
Have a favorite post from, oh, before 2009? Hit us up.
The official end, via a disassemble of the famous 2nd Ave Deli sign, occured this morning around 10 AM. There was nothing we could do, folks. More saddening photos just ahead.
