    Well, I'm not sure you are right about the front door thing (unless we use diagonal lines).
    Nope, even without diagonals.




    But Wholesome bagels doesn't start to bring back the nostalgia and good memories that I have from Mermelstein's.
    fair enough.

    Is it Holesome or Wholesome?

    One might argue that there is little that is more Crown Heights than a potato bagel

    fair enough.
    You are measuring in feet rather than actual walking time (in seconds) which includes crossing a street. In any event, as you mentioned, if I go via the alley it's a hands down for Mermelstein's.
    I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

    That did cross my mind, but I figured unless you only cross at the corner with a green light that shouldn't really change much.

    The man in the video was taken to the hospital

    The second victim is a friend of mine got punched in the face.

    Good response by shomrim and police. Yet we cannot ignore any of these incidents. This is almost happening weekly...
