My Dear Mr. Pinkwater,
I so injoyed your comentary ( 3/18/98) on finding a good deli in upstate NY. We finally have such an establishment in Oneonta. How ever that is not my reason for writing. There was a deli which my family and I loved in New Jersey….Pianicone’s, bakery/deli/resterante was a focal point of trips to the inlaws….fresh bread….picked out by it’s own number. This fall there was a fire, and we lost an old friend. The bakery is gone. I was surprised at the feeling of morning we all experienced. You comentary today reminded me of the wonderful tastes of an old friend.
Thanks for the reminder,
Malcolm Phillips, Oneonta NY
Funny, isn't it, how important bread is, and the memories and associations it can evoke?
