Before urban renewal, Hal's Delicatessen stood here, at 309 E State Street. It was a regular dining spot for Rod Serling. The creator of television's original and now legendary Twilight Zone is said to have favored hot pastrami sandwiches. The shop moved to 115 N. Aurora Street for many more years before closing in 2017.
