New York City’s 10 Best Bagel Shops If you have never tried a NYC bagel, they are not what you typically buy from a bagel chain bakery or from the grocery store. Most good NYC bagels are somewhat larger, lighter, less dense, and have a crispy outer crust. New York bagels taste the best bought soon after they come out of the oven and are warm. Therefore, toasting is not necessary or offered from most of the best NYC bagel shops. Ask the bagel shop employee how fresh they are and only buy the freshest flavor (plain, everything, wheat, blueberry, etc.) from the oven.
The Brooklyn Bridge is a bridge in New York City and is one of the oldest suspension bridges in the United States. Completed in 1883, it connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn by spanning the East River . With a main span of 1,595.5 feet (486.3 m), it was the longest suspension bridge in the world from its opening until 1903, and the first steel-wire suspension bridge. Originally referred to as the New York and Brooklyn Bridge and as the East River Bridge , it was dubbed the Brooklyn Bridge, a name from an earlier January 25, 1867, letter to the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle , [ 6 ] and formally so named by the city government in 1915. Since its opening, it has become an icon of New York City, and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1964 [ 5 ] [ 7 ] [ 8 ] and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972.
