Need a visual aid for your print edition? This week Jonathan Gold writes about Billy's Deli in Glendale (“like an apparition, an old-line deli plunked down among parking structures and vacant storefronts, a place you expect to find in Skokie or out on Coney Island Avenue, but not a bagel's toss from the Galleria”). Click through for Anne Fishbein's spectacular photos and read more in Gold's Counter Intelligence, “A Deli Grows in Glendale, Or Maybe Billy's Was There All Along.”
