Peter Pan Donuts IS the Central Park of Greenpoint – a cultural institution – for you have ONLY experienced this neighborhood if you have ordered in person and enjoyed one of these delectable cream filled treats.
This striking love lost piece by Sadie Stein – in none other than The Paris Review – conjures unforgettable Greenpoint moments:
When I commuted to the shop, I invariably found myself on the train with an elderly woman who, every day, was met at the top of the stairs by her husband. And every day, he would dip her back and greet her with a passionate kiss.
It echos: “No matter what happens, we will always have Peter Pan Donuts,” or in the case of those subway stop lovers – The G train!
