The pizza served at the snack bar at the Ellis Island museum and memorial is baked there, and is delicious. It is not the very best pizza in New York, but it is in the top 10.

As a general rule, there are no true bagels outside New York City; however, in Bloomington, IN, there is a coffee house called The Runcible Spoon that makes its own desserts, and they have bagels that are so damn close to New York, it's unbelievable. They are overpriced, but I'd get nostalgic, and buy them once in a while. My aunt makes her own bagels, but I swear there is something particular about New York, because she doesn't do anything different, but when she makes them in New York, they turn out much better than when she makes them in Indiana.
