Exploring the East Side and Downtown Neighborhoods

Here’s our comparison of Manhattan's Downtown and East Side to highlight which neighborhood and Glenwood building best suit your New York City lifestyle!

For All Candy Lovers

Economy Candy – 108 Rivington Street

For all of the Downtown residents, Economy Candy is not only a place to load up on candy, but it’s also a bit of a New York City experience every New Yorker should have at least once during their tenure here! The candy shop has been in existence since 1937, and still feels like 1937 when you walk in!

You’ll find all kinds of great things here, ranging from old timey favorites like Tootsie Rolls and candy cigars to New York City themed candy to imported chocolates to themed candy boxes from specific decades. And yes, they have plenty of Jelly Beans in every possible color and flavor. It’s the perfect place to go if you’re trying to load that Easter basket with candy that would be looked at as “oldies but goodies”. Classics have staying power for a reason.

Residents living in Barclay Tower will find Economy Candy a convenient place to load up on treats before April 1st!

For Specialty Surprises

Treat House –  452 Amsterdam Avenue

Trying to accommodate various dietary restrictions when it comes to sweet treats can be a tough one. That’s why we found a delicious spot that will check several boxes: it’s gluten-free, it’s kosher, it’s healthier than a lot of other candy options, and it’s actually really incredibly tasty!

Treat House is located on the Upper West Side and specializes in crafting marshmallow treats (think: rice krispies that your mom used to make you as after-school snacks) with really beautiful designs on top. And of course, for Easter you can load up on pretty pastel treats with bunnies and chicks and all kinds of cuteness! They also do custom jobs, so you can get really creative here–maybe even send the grandparents a package of Easter treats with their grandchildren’s photo with the Easter Bunny on top? No better way to score points with your in-laws if you ask us!

Both Hawthorn Park residents and residents at The Regent will be able to jaunt over here after work to load up on goodies with no problem.

For Gourmet Goodies

L.A. Burdick Handmade Chocolates – 156 Prince Street

If you’re more of a chocolate lover than a candy lover (there’ss totally a difference, right?), then head Downtown directly to L.A. Burdick Handmade Chocolates. The chocolate at this spot will make every drugstore variety chocolate bunny or egg you’ve ever consumed pale in comparison. There’s simply no return to mediocre after L.A. Burdick!

All the chocolate here is handcrafted with the freshest ingredients. In addition to the classic chocolate bunnies, you can also find such springtime delicacies as a chocolate nest with eggs, chocolate eggs with surprises in the middle (kind of like the fancy version of Kinder chocolate eggs), and “Spring Crates”, which are their creative take on the Easter basket.

Also, make sure to check out the best chocolate shops, and bakeries to find the best chocolate cake in Manhattan for even more inspiration!
