Norgaard's Bakery in Astoria

Is there anyone out there who remembers this wonderful bakery in Astoria? I think they must have closed in the 70's. My favorite item was their rainbow cookies. There's are the standard by which I have judged all others to this day. Raspberry jam between the 3 layers of cake, cookies cut thin, not fat, with the chocolate icing on all 4 sides. And, a layer of marzipan between the top and bottom layer of cake a chocolate. And another confection that was the folk's favorie - compartment cake. Anyone else remember Norgaard's? What was your favorite treat there?
