BEST CROISSANT In TOWN
THE HUNGARIAN PASTRY SHOP
113th STREET And AMSTERDAM AVENUE
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
Ever wonder how has “The Best Croissant in Town,” The Town of New York, NY ???
That’s Easy! It’s The Hungarian Pastry Shop up in East Harlem on Amsterdam Avenue at 113th Street, New York, NY … It’s across the street from the fabulous Cathedral of Saint John The Divine, to me the Coolest and Most Beautiful Cathedral in the World. And can you believe “most New Yorker’s” don’t even know it exist, or have ever heard of it, “Amazing!”
The Hungarian Pastry Shop is a favorite of nearby Columbia University students as well as faculty I’m sure. Not many New Yorker’s know of this wonderful little gem of a Pastry Shop Cafe, other than neighborhood locals, Columbia Students and tourists that might be tempted to drop in for Coffee and taste pastries like Sour Cherry Strudel, Croissants, and Coffee or the Dobos Torte, a Hungarian specialty.
A great “Double-Header” and wonderful way to spend a fine weekend day would be to take a train from wherever you might live in New York City, or if you’re a tourist, take the 1 Train to 116th Street/Columbia University and walk 4 block to 113th and Amsterdam Avenue. Go inside the incredibly beautiful Cathedral of St. John The Divine. Take a tour if possible, or just walk around, sit and contemplate, maybe pray, and just enjoy the beauty and grandeur before you. Take at least a half-hour, an hour or more, you won’t get bored. When you’re finished, go across the street for a coffee and pastry, or the best Croissant in town. Grab a table, sit back, relax and enjoy. And all for just about $10 to $15 total. You couldn’t have a better time, nor see more beauty, or get a a better croissant, not even for 15 Hundred. Believe me!
PS The equally beautiful Riverside Cathedral is only a few blocks from Cathedral of St. John Divine is another beautiful Cathedral, The Riverside Cathedral on Riverside Drive at 119th Street .. And 3 blocks up at Riverside Drive and 122nd Street you’ll find the answer and evidence to that age-old question, “Where is Grant Buried?” In Grant’s Tomb Yes, which is at 122nd Street and Riverside Drive overlooking The Hudson River in Manhattan, New York, NY … How Bout That?
