Last Shmear for H&H Bagels

The last H&H Bagels store was evicted from its last New York location for failing to pay back rent, the New York Daily News reported.

The iconic bakery outlet on W. 46th Street in Manhattan was chained shut Thursday after owner Helmer Toro failed to pay about $600,000 to the landlord the paper said.

“It’s the end,” Yann Geron, a building official told the paper.

H&H was best known for its location on W. 80th Street on the upper West Side, near famed deli Zabar’s. That shop closed last year, to tears from schmear-lovers.
