Leo "Lindy" Lindermann was the short, hustling founder of Broadway's fabled Lindy's restaurant on Broadway, between 49th and 50th Streets. Berlin-bred son of a linen peddler, Lindy came to the U.S. at 25, worked as bus boy and waiter. In 1921 he unveiled the first Lindy's just south of 50th Street. Soon his menu featuring gefüllte fish, blintzes and corned beef attracted the famed and ill-famed heroes of New York's big-spending '20s, and Lindy's became the prototype of Damon Runyon's "Mindy's." People came in for a peek at comedy stars such as the Marx Brothers or Milton Berle, who frequented Lindy's almost on a nightly basis. Lindy's was especially well-known for its cheesecake, which was at times credited as perhaps the most famous in America. The cheesecake was immortalized in Guys and Dolls, where Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson sang its praises.

Lindy's restaurant went dark forever in July of 1957, but you can own this original Lindy's ashtray, a rare souvenir from the legendary New York institution.
