zabar's - 2245 Broadway - map it here
Like 174 other City Daily Photo Blogs around the world, I am taking you shopping just around the corner. You can go on a (cheap) international shopping spree by browsing through these 174 posts on the portal here. Enjoy!
Until late yesterday, I was still undecided as to which corner shop to feature. See, the shops at both corners of my street are both New York institutions. On one corner, you have H&H Bagels ("like no other bagels in the world"). And on the other corner, you have Zabar's ("New York is Zabar's... Zabar's is New York").
I chose the later since Saul Zabar, its president and co-owner, is featured in today's New York Times:
• A Lifetime Amid the Lox and Rugelach
• Almost 80 and Still Zabar's Big Fish, a great audio slide show
