So I’m sure many know about Sex and the City. Yes the famous New York land marks that they have left for us die hard fans to find. We had decided to go to Magnolia Bakery that’s in Greenwich village. I realized that there are many more Magnolia Bakeries, spread throughout Manhattan. This specific one is on West 11th Street, 401 Bleecker St, New York, NY 10014. I had heard about this bakery but didn’t realize that it was famous. It was little shop on the corner of the street, it had that mom and pop kind of feel to it. It was sweet, just like the stuff that they sell. They had many flavors and choices for their customers and I was stumped when making my decision.
As I was waiting for my pastry I noticed a picture on the wall. It was a scene from Sex and the City of Carrie and Maranda, eating in front of the Bakery. Which I have displayed at the top of the page for you lovely people. I was psyched since my dream was to be like Carrie Bradshaw, minus the whole major heart break part of her life. We also found out later that her house was just up the street from the Bakery. I was in heaven with my red velvet cupcake and my iced latte (yes they have coffee!!). It was a nice little surprise that our trip had led us hear. I had completely forgotten that my favorite tv show had been filmed in Manhattan. But it didn’t matter since we were excited to even be in New York.
The area around the bakery was nice and there was a little park just up ahead. It’s peaceful and if you want to sit somewhere the park has benches, if you don’t feel like waiting to eat your cup cake. We realized later that the bench in the tv scene was not in front of the bakery (probably was only put there for the show). Even though I had only gotten a cupcake, and the Sex and the City girls are chowing down on some as well in the picture. The bakery doesn’t just have cupcakes (just to clarify) it has cakes, ice cream, cookies, and more. If anyone is interested in going to the Bakery I will leave a link down bellow.
