Donuts/cronuts in NYC (and cheesecake maybe?)

Going there on Tuesday and I really, really, want to find a good donut shop... I'd actually really love to try a good cronut.

Any suggestion? The plan is to go to Central Park (probably walking from Penn Station) then see Ground Zero, but we can walk around a little.

My sister also doesn't get to eat cheesecake much, so if you have a suggestion for a really good cheesecake, I'm listening!

    I think there's a really good bakery right in Penn Station ..... Zaro's Bread Basket .... if all else fails, they MIGHT have what you want ..... have a great trip !

    Doughnut Plant. Ignore the rest. While in Chelsea, swing into Chelsea Market and get tacos from Los Tacos. Eat them while walking along the Highline!

    I've been the Los Tacos, avoid it.

    I bought a nice Opinel knife in that market, but the equipment prices were FR.

    Yeah we decided to probably skip cheesecake tomorrow, but I'll keep that one in mind for next year!
