Prepare for a pang of sentimentalism: The last remaining location of H & H bagels is officially closed. Reports say that officials seized the 46th Street space on behalf of the landlord, who was owed a whole lotta dough. There’s been a lot of drama around the nostalgic bagel shop — involving tax fraud and debt, among other things — so we hope perhaps this brings the bagel legacy some peace.
