My buddy Jeremy, a bagel lover and baker himself, sent me this very cool, old video from the Brooklyn Public Library’s collection showing how they made bagels in the old days in Brooklyn. Those days are gone unfortunately, but there are still a few strongholds left in NY. Brooklyn itself has certainly changed. Watch how fast these boys roll the bagels. An art in itself. The one and only bagel I have had since moving to Rome a year ago, was at Jeremy’s. He makes a badass bagel, being a brit and all, and living in Rome for the last 10 years.
