Honor Loeser's Kosher Deli

In 1960, a 17-year-old boy took his Bar Mitzvah money and his father and opened up a small Kosher Deli on West 231st Street not knowing then, that his dream of being part of the Kingsbridge/Riverdale Community would last well over half of a century. Loeser's Deli has been a staple in the community for 58 years. It is the oldest standing (sole proprietorship) Kosher Deli in the Bronx today. As a staple of the community, Loeser's Deli has stood with local schools, houses of worship and community activism for the betterment of the Bronx. While the world around us has changed, there is still a mom and pop store where time has stood still. It's a place where pictures of yesterday line the walls and memories of tomorrow are still being made.
Whether you still reside in the Bronx or have a new zip code, your memories of the smells, the taste and the laughter come back quickly each time you think of Loeser's Kosher Deli.
A street sign should placed on the north side of West 231st Street in honor of this incredible establishment that has certainly withstood the test of time. As the world continues to change, the sign would serve as a permanent reminder to future generations. This is a well deserved honor for Loeser's Kosher Deli's 58th birthday.
