best bagels in nyc
Aside from my last name being Greenberg, my deep & everlasting love of bagels is probably the most Jewish thing about me. They are the perfect food. A big sold mass of fluffy carbs that you can slice open and pack full of goodies. If you cant love that, you're a monster. Below is my definitive list of the best in Manhattan & Brooklyn.
