H&H Bagels’ UWS Location Is Toast

The Wall Street Journal’s Metropolis blog is reporting that the H&H; Bagel located at 80th Street and Broadway — as if you didn’t know where it was — will close its doors for good tomorrow, owing to a rent issue. All signs point to the bagel shop’s closure being far more permanent than it was in 2009, when a tax issue shuttered both locations briefly. Speaking of both locations! The 46th Street shop will apparently remain open, but a weekend-morning trip to West 46th Street doesn’t really have the same charm as strolling through the UWS, right? We’ve got a call in to the owners and will let you know if we hear anything else! [Metropolis/WSJ via Sam Sifton/Twitter]
