Okay, New Yorkers. I need your help.
I live on 14th st. Bet. 5th and 6th ave. and I am trying to find a bagel place to call my own. I like my bagels big, chewy, and piping hot.
I used to live in Queens, where the bagels are delicious and insanely cheap by the baker's dozen....and suddenly i find that here, the norm is 12 dollars (give or take a few dollars) per baker's dozen. Yikes.
What is the cheapest dozen around my area, without sacrificing that perfect NY bagel taste and texture?
