Linden tree on Bleecker StreetMagnolia Bakery

Last night was made for wandering around Greenwich Village to partake in two olfactory wonders of the world: The melony-floral-honey scent of blooming linden trees and the hypnotic smell of Magnolia Bakery's rich buttercream frosting. Of course, Gothamist had to partake in a cupcake (pink frosting, yellow cake; the yellow cake is moister than the chocolate).
