Where's a good place to get a decent prune danish? Preferably in Manhattan, but elsewhere in the city is fine.

    My favorite prune danish is in Riverdale, Bronx, at Mothers Bake Shop.

    I have been eating them for 30 years - still a great treat when I ride over that way.

          Are they in Manhattan or the outer boroughs?

            When fresh, the prune danish from the Hot & Crusty chain, with several shops in Manhattan, are surprisingly good.
