Much like the hole in a bagel, a hole was torn into the Upper West Side when H&H Bagels was kicked out of its spot at 80th Street and Broadway because of failure to pay rent. Well, Leslie Albrecht of DNAinfo got word of an exciting new development about the vacant space: wipe your tears Upper West Siders, because a new bagel store may be moving into the spot! No, not a bank, not a drug store — a real live bagel store! Queens-based Davidovich Bagels is in talks with the landlord Friedland Properties about opening up there. We can only pray that the deal goes through. (DNAinfo)
