I am of the New York (and Jewish) diaspora, living in the Philly area, and I haven't been to NY for a long time, so I miss Zabars! The absolute best best best bagels and lox and the most fabulous rye bread on the planet, and so I'm so happy that I can now order Zabars online and have it delivered...to me and my siblings in Virginia, who really can't get real bagels or rye bread!

Happy Birthday, Zabars, long may you live!

My Mom and I moved to West End Avenue in 1952.

Yes, Broadway was a bit different then..no national chains, for sure. and Zabar's, as I recall it, was a long narrow storefront with a big old-fashioned pickle barrel planted prominently near the front entrance.

We have been customers ever since, including Zabar's catering for my twin sons' bris (they are now 31) and Mom's last Thanksgiving Dinner (that was two years when she passed at 105 years of age!).

Zabar's for mitzvah's and long life!

I smell the freshness from a station away!
