A very popular neighborhood fixture, Ess-a-Bagel, will apparently go the way of so many other mom-and-pop businesses in Manhattan: it's going to be gone. To be taken over by, what else, a bank (Bank of America) and something called "Tal Bagels." Gone, too, will be Grill 21 and Rose Restaurant.
I'd rather have "Tower Bagels" be a CVS or a Duane Reade, but you can't have everything.
Folks, we are losing this city, piece by piece.
