The <i>real</i> story…

The real story…

...of what happened on Sunset Avenue which attracted so much law enforcement attention Saturday morning.

A couple new to the Village, stopped at the first deli they spotted, Sunset Court.

Ordering both breakfast and some luncheon fare for their day at the beach, when the wife returned to their car, she announced:

"I've been robbed!"

The husband instructed her to call 9-1-1, which she immediately did.

"I've been robbed!"

...she announced as her sticker-shock dis­tress began to increase.

"What is your location, Ma'am?"

Her frantic gaze fell upon the first large sign in view.

"We're by Astoria Federal Savings...."

This got Dispatcher Charlie Benkov's attention away from the array of the morning's New York City tabloids spread out before him.

"We'll get right on that, Ma'am."

Of course by the time the radio call went out, Astoria Federal Savings was hosting a robbery-in-progress.

And now you know... the rest of the story.

And naturally it's all true because now you're read it on the Internet!

But it's no sillier than the NY Post's report.

I have heard it said that all publicity is good publicity; should I thank you, Dean?

Thank you for accepting it in the spirit in which it was intended, Brian... you will note the link.

Plus, don't forget that Brian's iced tea is the stuff of legend.

Virtually EVERY high school kid heads there!

Summer people come back for it.

Your kids and my kids make pilgrimages, not to Lourdes, but to "The German Deli" for this amazing liquid gold whenever they're in town!

Plus, the food is great, and despite huge crowds, there's enough staff to keep the customers moving.

Yes, dear.

Brian's iced tea, although already famous, has become even more so on a Facebook page called: "You know you're from Westhampton when..."
