I am not sure I agree with all of the bagel choices, but I will give props for the nice tie-in of the article and the map.

Paul Seres was once in Venue Advisors with Ariel Palitz and he owned a lounge called Apt. 13 on Avenue C which was shut down by DOB and the SLA made him give up his license for lying on his application, the second fl. was never legal. He should never be allowed to acquire any more licenses in NYC.
