I'm planning my trip and am not knowledgeable on areas or quality but did come across this and thought it may help.

2. Black & White Cookies

A great Black and White Cookie is worth seeking out. Ideally the cookies texture is somewhere in between a cookie and a cake, and half is frosted with chocolate icing and half is frosted with white icing with a hint of citrus.

14th St. & 7th Avenue will be right on the boundary of Chelsea and the West Village. Neighborhoods in NYC don't have formal boundaries, however.

Sorry, I think this is just a step above Russell Crowe feinschmecking hardtack (and maggots) aboard ship. There are so many better delicacies in New York than this tooth-aching cookie and icing. Cupcakes and milkshakes are crowding out authentic immigrant treats, but even cupcakes are better than these cookies.

We like the b&w’s (USD$2.50) at Chelsea Bagel and Café at 139 W. 14th Street (near 7th Avenue). See:


Hope this helps. Your questions are always welcome.

William Greenberg supposedly has the #1 black & white cookie in NYC. I have yet to try.

The black & white cookie from Juniors is very good (so is the cheesecake! and my DH loves the cherry danish).

I avoid any B&W that is wrapped in plastic wrap. I enjoy the slight crunch of the cookie exterior and the wrap makes it "soft".
