"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

New York City Sweet Tooth

French Tourists

French Tourists Outside The Magnolia Bakery


I really wanted to photograph the line outside the bakery.   When we went there on Saturday evening there were customers but no line.

My sister loves me a lot. She walked with me up Bleecker Street after our outing to Brooklyn.

I was able to photograph the line.

Line at Magnolia Bakery

Here is the line at the Magnolia Bakery.  Often photographed and talked about.   My sister found a site online with 282 photographs of Magnolia Bakery products. Guess I was a little late with my desire to take this photo.  But I did it anyway.

Earlier in the day we walked through Chinatown on Mott Street






Mary and I ate these delicious Hot Cross Buns from Rocco’s Pasticceria after we rode Jane’s Carousel  (part of tomorrow’s post)

  2. What a sweet outing. I’d die for an Anna Banana cupcake. I have to remember these places the next time I’m in New York. Your photos make my mouth water.

    You didn’t eat anything you photographed! – I would have tried it all. Everything looked yummy.

    I will not get through this day without a sweet treat – after listening to So In Love, Hostess Cupcakes came to mind. We’ve come a long way.

    Very nice post today. Enjoyed it all from the “sweets” to the DooWop music. Thanks for brightening the Monday. Need to find a good Hot Cross Bun now.
