NEW YORK (AP) — The famous Stage Deli in Manhattan has closed.

The deli, on Seventh Avenue near 54th Street, got its start 75 years ago. It was known for overstuffed sandwiches named for celebrities.

Co-owner Paul Zolenge says the dining landmark had been struggling for some time. He tells The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/TqE23C ) that yet another rent increase was expected when the lease ended in a few months.
