NYC bagel maker who had payroll tax run-in is closing iconic store

H&H Bagels, the iconic New York City bagel shop that in 2009 was charged with failure to make payroll tax payments, is closing its Upper West Side store.

Earlier this week, H&H's store at Broadway and West 80th Street had been stripped of its signage, distinctive brown-striped awnings and ATMs.

"It's an institution, almost like a museum," City Councilwoman Gale A. Brewer told the New York Times. "Everybody dreams of their store being a destination, but this one really is a destination. You can literally get a hot bagel at 3 o'clock in the morning, and it literally comes out of the oven in front of you."

The bagel maker's run-in with the IRS was just part of its recent financial troubles. In February, the company behind H&H filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

One bit of good news for H&H fans. The bagel company's factory story will remain open.

And a similarly named bagel store in Midtown is still serving customers. That operation, however, is not connected to the H&H that is shutting its Upper West Side doors.
