Thanksgiving is steeped in tasty traditions. Roasting a beautifully browned turkey is an art, but baking is more of a science. It takes a lot of time and effort to get that flakey butter crust and smooth filling that your guests remember long after the leftovers are gone. Who has that kind of time? Fortunately, you don’t have to spend days to baking an array of pies from scratch. When you live in a one of our New York City apartment communities, all you have to do is pick up the phone and order a chunky chocolate pecan pie or a silky pumpkin maple pie from one of these renowned bakeries, then serve it up on a pretty platter. These are the top three places to get your Thanksgiving pies in NYC.
