I'm a life long Chicagoan who's heard constantly from New Yorkers how great their bagels and pizza are in the city. The last time I visited, I tried Ray's Pizza and some random bagels sold near Times Square and wasn't too impressed. I was pretty damn impressed by the delis though.
So I'm going back to NYC again, and will be in Midtown/Times Square area for about 4 days. Where would you go for a slice and, for breakfast, bagels that is within reasonable walking distance of that area?
