Boo, New York Snobs

I quite like New York for the most part but this instance of New York snobbery won't stand up. The bagels that are always most highly recommended to me in NYC just aren't that good, and any fule kno that the best bagels ever to be found were in Squirrel Hill's Bageland (ironcially, "New York Style Bageland"), now sadly out of business. Snobbery will never beat the combination of hometown chauvinism and nostalgia. Squirrel Hill (that's in Pittsburgh) has pretty great pizza too.
