I recently moved out of New York and, naturally, miss the bagels. I'm going to be there this weekend and was hoping to take home a small stash to keep in my freezer. However, my ride home Sunday afternoon is too long to buy already frozen bagels without them thawing. I was thinking the next best plan would be to buy fresh bagels as late as possible in the afternoon and then freeze them as soon as I get home Sunday evening. Does anyone know of good bagel places that keep baking fresh bagels in the afternoon, preferably below 14th street? I used to go to Hudson Bagels, but I can't remember how late they're open or when they stop putting out fresh bagels. I have lunch plans and doubt I'd be able to get anywhere before 2:30 or 3.
Thanks very much in advance for your help!
