Several readers wrote in over the past two days to report they had noticed police activity at Lansky’s Deli (235 Columbus, btw. 70/71) and that a sign on the restaurant noted it was closed due to “acts of vandalism.” I’ve been slammed with non-MyUpperWest stuff this week and hadn’t had a chance to investigate, but [...]
