The “613” overrides the lack of street name.  ;)

Good to see this is kosher and CY.  Are they including baked goods and pastries in their menu and kosher certification?

Has anyone ever gone through immigration at Pittsburgh International? Any idea how long it will take to get through (British passport)?

Pretty sad that they closed. They worked pretty hard. They had a few dishes that were quite good

I'm surprised there was no discussion of this in the thread, but what are some ideas for stops on the drive from NY area to PIT? When I did it once, we drove straight, but wondering what stops are on the way aside from Hershey?

Oy the Bash Brothers over here... sometimes people have to go to Pittsburgh, believe it or not. :P There have to be stops on the way to break up the drive. Anything in Easton, Allentown, Reading? Just picking out some names I've heard of on the map.

Yes, of course I looked there. Other threads for driveable trips from NY have on the way activities. I basically built the one for Niagara. It's not crazy to come here looking for ideas people might have already shared.

Ok here's one Crayola Factory. Forgot about that. 1:45ish from NY so that's a good first stop.
