Legend has it that William Greenberg Jr. started his first family bakery in 1946 with money he’d won playing cards. Over the years, several of his uptown shops came and went and this is the latest iteration, still serving all of the man’s signature kosher cookies, cakes and brownies. Dive into favorites like schnecken, shortbread linzer tarts filled with raspberry preserves, apple strudel, black-and-white cookies and cinnamon babka (coffee cake covered with streusel crumbs).

MADE A SPECIAL TRIP TO WM GREENBERG BAKERY AFTER HEARING THE RAVE REVIEWS FROM LIVE'S KELLY RIPA/MICHAEL STRAHAN ON MY LAST TRIP TO NYC. COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE DISAPPOINTED. DANISH WAS VERY STALE AND YOU COULDN'T FIND THE NUTS IN THE BROWNIES ''WITH NUTS" --- SO MINISCULE! MY BAKERIES IN CT & FLORIDA ARE FAR SUPERIOR AND WM GREENBERG & STAFF SHOULD BE ASHAMED!
