Back in 1980, my dad took me to NYC. We went to the top of the Empire State Building, and visited the Nedick’s on or near the highest inhabited floor. He bought me a painted Nedick’s glass, and I treasured it (it was really pretty, with the New York skyline at sunset) and always washed it by hand. Four years later, I dropped it on the kitchen floor. I wasn’t carrying anything else and my hands weren’t greasy; it just happened. I was devastated. I was telling Mr. Rilch about this last night, and he said, “That’s really sad, because there’s probably not a Nedick’s there anymore. I’ll betcha anything it’s a Starbucks.” Anyone know if the Nedick’s is still there, or if it’s a Starbucks, or what?
Remember, I’m pulling for you; we’re all in this together.
