Chocolate in the City: Upper West Side & Harlem Apartments near NYC's Levaine Bakery!

August 11, 2011

I finally get to combine my love of chocolate and food with the love of apartment hunting! Weekly I will share with you my top sweets and restaurants in the city and how to live only blocks away from them...

Best Cookies in the City: Levain Bakery, hands down.

Levain has several locations. The one I have repeatedly been too is in the Upper West Side  at 167 West 74th street. They have other spots in the Hamptons and in Harlem at 2167 Frederick Douglass Blvd. When I was a broker I would always convince my clients to make a drive-by there. Their chocolate chip cookies are insanely satisfying... I would forgo lunch and have two of these and be on my merry way.

Tip: My favorite is the dark chocolate chocolate chip cookies. A true choco-holic understands why. I mean look at them..

Now if you want to live within walking distance to the best cookies in the city, here are some recommended no-fee NYC apartment buildings for you:
