Carnegie Deli’s Upstairs Tenants Finally Get Heat, Hot Water Restored

(DNAINFO)  Murray Weiss | January 5, 2016 — Talk about Happy Holidays.

Hot running water began to flow a week before Christmas and heat rose through the pipes just before New Year’s for the chilled tenants living without heat or hot water for nine months above the shuttered Carnegie Deli.

Tenants Elsie and Pasquale Forino had spent 57 years living happily amid the wafting smells of pastrami and corned beef before the deli was shut by the city.

Con Edison cut off the gas in April after finding the restaurant hooked up an illegal line that was stealing fuel, and then the city insisted the owners not only pay fines, but upgrade all the building’s pipes to modern standards.
