A sad day has come to pass, even all of the Jews in Manhattan’s Upper West Side couldn’t fight the rising rents of the borough and sadly H&H bagels closed.  This doesn’t mean H&H is done, they still will have their huge factory in the 40s on Manhattan’s far west side, but the retail location many have come to rely on for pre-work breakfast and Saturday and Sunday brunch noshing is sadly no more.

The company has had trouble in the past, the owner was recently charged with a felony for owing $300,000 worth of taxes to the state, but still the closure of their retail location in the heart of Manhattan’s iconic Jewish neighborhood, is unfortunate, and this just means we are one step closer to Montreal bagels taking over New York.
