The Lebewohl family continues to run the 2nd Avenue Deli, although a rent dispute forced it to relocate. There are now two locations, including one in Murray Hill. Abe's brother Jack says while the restaurants continue to thrive, Abe's presence is sorely missed. The NYPD says the case remains an active investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
