Going to New York City and walking through the grand central station is a wonderful experience. It’s like a mall, but with so much uniqueness. The Grand Central Station has a market place where they sell food like a farmers market, restaurants and clothing stores. Walking through the restaurants with Pizza aroma in the air. Then there is a line for cheesecake. Well, you are in New York City, you must have to take in the food that made this city.
I went to New York City many times while residing in Massachusetts. Every time I would come to the city, I had to have New York Style pizza that was a thin crust; and a piece of New York style cheesecake. Junior is a bakery that sells cheesecake right in Grand Central Station. I would buy a slice and eat in on the train on the way home. Not all cheesecake is the same. Junior’s is so yummy, it’s lightly sweetend and has no crust. It’s moist and oh’ so delicious.
Oh’ I could babble on about Junior’s cheesecake.
