The City Sweet Tooth is an illustrated blog that features travel and food with a special focus on New York City’s finest pastry shops, bakeries, cafes, and unique treats. One of the best things about living in New York is the availability of one of a kind (sometimes legendary) desserts and snacks. The blog covers places both new and old, famous and less well-known. Those who know me know I love New York and I love sweets, so this a dream project! The City Sweet Tooth has appeared bi-weekly in the NYC local digest, The L Magazine and regularly on nearsay.com, and my illustrations have appeared in edible Manhattan, edible East End, and edible Brooklyn. You can follow me on Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram as well!
