Flagel-late Me!!!

Look up in the's a bagel, it's a pletzel, it's a's a Flagel! Had a warm toasted everything flagel near my Mom's house in Queens at a place called Hot Bialy on Queens Blvd. near Union Tpke but they're apparently known more for their flagels than their bialys or bagels. For the uninitiated, a flagel is a bagel that looks like roadkill. Totally flattened out and therefore having a much larger radius and the illusion of less dough. But it totally changes the textural experience while providing far more surface area for your favorite shmear or preferred smoked fish (mine is buttah with sturgeon). I've heard that David's bagels makes them on 1st Avenue around 17th. Anybody know where to find them in Manhattan or do I have to resort to self-flagel-lation?
