need NYC foodstuffs to take back home & food recs

So...this is a two-parter. I used to live in nyc, but moved to a rural town and miss the food most of all. Going up for a short visit and want to know your recommendations for foodstuffs that I should bring back home - mainstays, treats, and cooking ingredients that are hard to find in a small town. Right now I'm thinking of a few good cheeses from Murray's and some baguettes to store in the freezer. Any other ideas?? I won't have time to trek all over the city so below 23rd St. please.
Would also love ideas for places or items you think I must try if possible while there. I'll primarily be in the village and usq. I've heard about the cronut nonstop, is it really a must-try?
