I have always loved window displays as they are such an inspiration. It gives the shop a personality and it should be beautiful enough to beckon you in. One of my favourites is cake/ pastries/ pies displays. They always look so inviting when you are strolling by.
I had to drop by at Amy's bread at 9th Avenue near Hell's Kitchen in New York. They are famous for their bread especially their sweet golden semolina with raisins and fennel. But I decided to go for an orange cookie instead with coffee.
There is a stretch of nice cafes and eateries along 9th Avenue, especially Thai food. I was pretty tired of eating deli food at Times Square and would prefer to walk quite a distant from 6th avenue where my hotel was located just to have dinner.
