“Give me a dozen, my life’s blood—without bagels, what is a day!”
If you feel this way about bagels, you’ll love this throwback clip, unearthed by the Brooklyn Public Library, which has this to say about it:
As a piece of old New York nostalgia, it’s well worth the seven minutes—particularly for excellent quotes like, “These people in the Midwest, they wouldn’t know a bagel from a donut. Only reason they ever saw a bagel is because it fell off the back of a truck. Four professors were dissecting it before they found out what it was all about!” At very least skip to 5:54 to see the best bagel order OF ALL TIME. Seriously.
Of course, this great peek into history is tinged with sadness given the sad state of the New York bagel today.
