Just a note re a long-time CH favorite: donut stalwart Alfa Donuts at 46th Street and Queens Boulevard, an old-style, squat-ceilinged, brown-lit 24-hour hole in the wall complete with midgety counter and stools that force one into the same upper-abdomen compressing posture that solves hiccups. The donuts may be tasty, and the environment appealing, but the donuts are not made on-site. They are delivered. From one of the nearby Queens-based donut factories that supply every donut vendor west of Long Island and east of Fifth. (NJ factories supply much of the West Side.) If the donuts drove you, then the Alfa myth is dead. If the destination drove you, then long live Alfa.
