New York City’s H&H Bagels is celebrating 50 years of serving and delivering bagels “like no other bagel in the world.”

Since 1972, H&H Bagels has been a New York City staple for all things bagel. Originally founded by Helmer Toro, the brand opened its first location in Midtown and throughout the 70s, opened a handful of locations, including one on the Upper East Side, located at 1551 2nd Avenue.

After some financial issues, ownership of H&H Bagels split, with the Upper East Side location going under separate ownership from the other stores. In 2011, most of the H&H Bagels went under and many stores closed, but the one on the Upper East Side remained.
