This can’t be the whole story. Granted, 33K is a lot to pay for a month’s rent, but the place is a mint. I’d be willing to make a substantial wager that the net income from take-out during the High Holidays, to say nothing of Passover, would cover their rent for a year.
So does this mean that I can stop fighting with the Katz’s partisans about who has the better pastrami and corned beef?
