The Donut Pub, 14th Street and 7th Avenue
99 cents for a boston cream to be exact. I had a tough time deciding between the boston cream and an old-fashioned sugar donut. I think by "old-fashioned" they mean cake donut. We have Tien's nighttime photo to thank for my daytime visit yesterday.
It has not been a good couple of weeks for old-time donut shops. The great Old Fashioned Donuts at 86th and Lexington recently closed. I rarely visit the Upper East Side, but when I got off the subway at 86th Street I made a point of getting a glazed donut at Old Fashioned. No more. I also noticed that the donut place at 116th and Lexington has also closed within the past couple of weeks. They never seemed too busy. The one time I got a donut there it was stale. I wonder if anyone would mind if their Hershey's Ice Cream sign were to be liberated?
Oh, take a closer look at the window above "The":
I never noticed it before processing the picture but that's a nice stained-glass window. I wonder if it is from the original construction?
