last day of NY bagels

God, no time to post, but here's some pictures of NY Bagel's last day.  It was really sad.
Here's a handsome guy musing on the end of bagels as he knows them.
Detail of Robert Gordon's masterpiece.

Here's the guest book.  Read these entries.  I like this one because the kid's aunt busts him out for crying. Cute!

The murals look great, I can almost feel the crying.

What a classy note. Why did they close? The economy or retirement?

The owners wanted to sell the store and retire, but no one bought it. One of the owners was quite teary-eyed the whole time we were there. I think they had envisioned selling it and still hanging around a bit. They said there was still a chance someone would buy and the store would reopen.
