Schweller's and Epsteins

We lived in Yonkers when I was growing up and frequently went to Jerome Avenue, around Gun Hill Road to eat. There was Epstein's Kosher Deli, Schweller's Kosher Deli, Jade Gardens Chinese restaurant and a great bagel/bialy store with one door marked "Bagels" and one marked "Bialys" but they led to the same store, with the bagels made right there in front of you. Those were great bagels/bialys. Can't find those anymore. Schweller's was more of a restaurant than Epsteins and they had old waiters that shook when they brought you the food. There was one waiter named Jerry who would put aside a piece of their chocolate layer cake for me as soon as my parents and I walked in. Does anyone else have any memories of this area?
