A bagel shop in our region is the focus of some national attention today.

A&S Bagels in Franklin Square made the list for top 20 best bagel shops across the country in a study conducted by MSN.com.

The 24/7 bagel shop on Hempstead Turnpike is making its presence known.

The president of the store says no matter what time you come in, there's a line.

So what’s the store’s secret?

Keeping it classic.

“I’ve been a baker all my life from 1963 and we do everything the old fashioned way; we don't cut no corners, with the old kettle, the oven from like 40-50 years ago,” says Antonio Scolieri, president of the shop.

The store is one of two from New York to make the list, and the only one on the Island.
