Standing on the southwest corner of First Avenue and Houston Street. On the left, you are looking north up First Avenue, and on the right you are looking east along Houston Street. Houston is indeed a grand boulevard, but it overmuch an automotive artery. Katz's is a couple of blocks east down Houston Street. Incidentally, "Houston" is pronounced "HOUSE-tin." It was named after William Houston, who was a Delegate to the Continental Congress.
