  1. Essa Bagel on 52nd and 3rd Ave. It's a bit of a hike from your hotel, but well worth it.

      To make it easier to find - it's on 51st and 3rd - and it is WELL worth the walk. If you're used to toasted bagels, don't worry when they tell you they simply "don't toast"; it's because the bagels are often still hot/warm from the oven. Enjoy!

        Agreed!! Essa Bagels is hands down the best bagels!

      2. That's a pretty long walk, but the bagels are among my favorite in the city.

        1. Times Square Hot Bagels (44th? 43rd?) is very close to you and is pretty good. Ess-A is the best in New York, and I've had all the famous ones this past month, some side-by-side.

          1. I think H&H is the closest to you at 46th and 12th. Just remember, they won't toast or otherwise prepare your bagel.
