Murray's Sturgeon Shop
The shop was founded by Murray Bernstein in 1945. A few years later, his brother, Sam, became a co-owner. The Bernsteins were born in Poland and immigrated to New York in the 1930s to escape anti-semitism.
The store specializes in smoked fish, especially sturgeon, and caviar. In 1964, the New York Times described it as "one of the busiest places on Broadway" and praised its products as "first quality". The store ships their fish all over the world, and in 1980 Murray's appetizers were being sold at the Neiman Marcus Epicure Shop in White Plains, New York.
In 1974, the shop was sold to restaurateur Artie Culter in turn who sold it to Ira Goller in 1990.
