Where can I buy almond macaroons in New York?

A few years ago, I went to Gloucester, Mass. and bought my favorite cookies, almond macaroons, at one of the loacal Italian pastry shops. These are unlike French macaroons, which have become increasingly popular stateside. Although I could make the long drive to Gloucester, I have to assume that there are one or more places in the New York area that also sell these. Suggestions greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yay!! I love Court Street, they have the best pasti ciotti and other Italian pastries as well. So glad you found them.

Also, maybe try Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Old school Italian groceries, meats, cheeses, pastries, pasta, etc. (think Little Italy was 30 yrs ago.) Far more authentic than trendy overpriced places like Eataly.

If you would venture into Brooklyn, Court Street Bakery on Court Street in Cobble Hill has a wonderful array of Italian pastries and cookies.

Are you thinking amaretti? To me, those are the Italian version of the French macaroons. And sorry I only know a great place for French macaroons which would be Francois Payard's!

I'm thinking of the soft version. Amaretti are similar,but not the same.
