After 79 years of serving loads of meat to tourists and New Yorkers alike, the Carnegie Delicatessen is finally closing down. People have been lining up all week, getting their last taste of that famous Carnegie cured meat. 

The restaurant will close down at midnight on Friday. Get your final sandwich today if you haven't already. 

Original Story

It'll be a sad few months on 7th Avenue. The Carnegie Deli, named for Carnegie Hall in Midtown Manhattan, will be closing at the end of 2016 after 79 years of service.

The "world's most famous delicatessen" is known for its huge pastrami sandwiches and its pop culture cameos. 

Many online are coping with the announcement through humor. 

Lots of humor. 

According to a spokesman for the restaurant, the midtown Manhattan restaurant will close on Dec. 31. Marian Harper Levine, whose family took control of the restaurant in 1976, told her employees on Friday.
