    Food

    Great Neck is a predominately Jewish area, so any of the bagel stores (there are several) in the village are probably fine. For a good Italian bakery you will have to go to an Italian neighborhood, Arthur Avenue in the Bronx is your best bet, The closest large diner is the Seven Seas Diner on Northern Blvd (NY25A) on the corner of Lakeville Road in Great Neck (east of Middleneck Road).

    I know its not necessarily close (about 24 miles away from the academy) but in Hoboken, New Jersey there is Carlos Bakery. It is an Italian bake shop and is the bakery that is on TLC's Cake Boss. I haven't been there personally yet but have heard it is "the best." :biggrin:

    Easier and closer is Polito's Bakery in New Hyde Park. Take LIE to Shelter Rock Road exit, Shelter Rock to right on Herricks Road, Herricks Road to right on Hillside Avenue, and Polito's will be on the right side. A real neighborhood place, it's been there for at least forty years.

    3365 Hillside Avenue
    New Hyde Park, NY 11040
    (516) 248-6618

    Bruce's Bakery

    Do not miss Bruce's Bakery in Great Neck. It is a great place for breakfast and our DS brings us a box of goodies from Bruce's everytime he comes home!

    We also went to Bruce's Bakery in Great Neck... omg omg omg, I'm hooked. We saw the pictures of famous people on the wall, a thank you letter from Hillary Clinton...apparently it's very well known!? (it's not really fancy, it's just a little cute bakery). I got one little box of mini cookies and we devoured them. Next time, I'm brining a box home!!!
