Water bagels?

kernel Feb 24, 2009 08:37 PM

When I was growing up on Coney and J in Brooklyn, the bagel store on Coney near Avenue K had 2 choices-egg or water bagels. I remember what the water bagels were like but can't find any place thus far with their multitude of choices that has this simple creation. Can you help?

    Dear former neighbor (having grown up in the 50s and 60s on E. 13 between K & L)...they are hard to find, but a good replacement is the bagel store in Quakerbridge, NJ on Flock, just off Quakerbridge Road. I used to get them also when I lived in Canarsie on Flatlands at 79th (Bell Bagels), but alas, time marches on. These in Jersey were very close to what I remember.
