  Randomly stopped to try their knish.. tried the blueberry, apple, spinach, and jalapeño.
The blueberry was fresh from the oven and was by far the favorite. The apple was good, but not as good as blueberry!  The jalapeño fell short of expectations, but the spinach was a good choice.
Definately will stop again and again.

  Cheese knish with blueberries is what the angels brought from from Heaven as a teaser.

  The best knishses anywhere....the store, kind of a dump.   It's been there for 100+ years....and it looks it.  Driving to NYC tomorrow to get some Yonah Schimmel.
