Als New York Delicatessen 
133 25th Street, Newport News, VA 23607

1957 Anchor, p. 196  

When I was a little girl I used to delight every time my daddy would take me here.  The ambience was delightful,
and Al would make us scrumptious sandwiches of corned beef on rye.  At the counter were a variety of exotic treats,
and Daddy would always buy me a Joyva Crown.  This was a kosher chocolate bar from Brooklyn in the shape
of a semi-circle.  Al was astonished that I liked them, as they had a flavor very different from other candy bars,
and most children did not seem to enjoy them. I've not seen one in years, but I wish I could taste one just once more.
