New York Bagel Café & Deli bakes fresh New York–style bagels smothered in Philadelphia cream cheese, and lunchtime sandwiches packed with Boar’s Head deli meats. The menu’s numerous sandwiches arrive on bagels, inside wraps, or between the UN sanctioned borders of eight different types of bread with classic fixings including the chicken salad layered in lettuce and tomato, served with a pickle and choice of side. The turkey club fills its bready pouch with turkey, american cheese, and bacon, and the grilled-chicken pesto features grilled chicken breast loaded with fresh mozzarella, roasted red pepper, and pesto. A rotating schedule of soups accompanies sandwiches, delivering scintillating scents from draughts such as Maryland crab and italian wedding. Patrons can take provisions home with a dozen assorted bagels such as cinnamon raisin, blueberry, and the all-encompassing everything.

Lobbies of glass walls supply visitors with sweeping views of the river to accompany the museum’s collection.

Though he lived in a small town, Christian Carmack Sanderson was a true renaissance man of the late 19th century and early 20th century. He served his community as a schoolteacher, but his interests were wide and varied?he could also aptly be called a historian, musician, and radio personality. The Christian C. Sanderson Museum displays many of Sanderson's historical artifacts, as well as his personal belongings.
The Building: Eight rooms of Sanderson's country home, filled with artifacts and displays
Permanent Mainstay: To commemorate Sanderson's friendship with the NC Wyeth family, the museum displays several photos and paintings, including a portrait of Sanderson painted by Andrew Wyeth himself.
Don't Miss: Sanderson was a collector of what he called "living history;" visitors can take a peek at sand collected from the digging of the Panama Canal as well as melted ice from the South Pole
Hidden Gem: Artifacts related to national history include letters written from Civil War soldiers to Sanderson, as well as cannonballs that were found in the area
For the Kids: Kids can tour the museum via a scavenger hunt for specific artifacts, such as a Victrola record player and easter eggs from 1886
Praise: "I spent two hours at this museum without regret, well maybe one, I would have liked to spend more time. There is so much to see." ? Delaware County Daily Times

This diverse selection of training opportunities stands as a testament to ASBA's growth: the academy now has five facilities under its umbrella, totaling more than 90,000 square feet of training space. Multiple times throughout the year, ASBA sets aside its own training areas to host prospect camps at universities and stadiums. There, coaches and scouts can watch ballplayers in action, timing how fast they run, assessing their pitch speed, and seeing how well they hit with pool noodles instead of bats.
