Prior to our visit we'd not heard the work "bialy" and obviously had no clue what it was/is. Well now we know and Kossar's is prominent in bringing it to NYC. Now we know bagels but certainly are not experts and if blindfolded I'm not...More

Big disappointment. Nice website but when you arrive you are completely underwhelmed. Nothing hot unless you want to wait 10 to 30 minutes. Sorry, no onion bagels, have some in 30 minutes. I had to go to work. The few varieties of bagels they did...More

Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving
immigrant past and its modern transformation into a
beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side
is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city.
The blocks of tenements that represented the promise
and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience
now command top dollar for new residents. Right next
to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment
