Levain Bakery has hands down the best chocolate chip cookie in the city – they’re huge, soft, gooey, melty, with the perfect ratio of chocolate to cookie. It just doesn’t get much better, and they have the long lines to prove it! Try going on a weekday for your best bet at beating the crowds. The UES also has the most adorable wall mural, don’t miss it!
