Cheap NYC Sweets and Pastries

I don’t know about you guys but if I have an Achilles heel in life, it’s for sweets.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve had a sweet tooth.

Be they Almond Croissants, Cheesecakes, Black Forest Pastry or those yummy Pakistani/Indian sweets, I love ’em all.

Age has not diminished my love for sweets.

Au contraire, my craving for sweets has only increased with time.
