Upon emigrating from Germany, John and Justine Glaser opened Glaser's Bake Shop in the Upper East Side neighborhood known as Yorkville on April 2, 1902. After years of serving happy New Yorkers, their son Herbert took over the bakery, using many of the German recipes his parents had originally used and continued to bake and run the business for close to 70 years. Upon retiring he turned the baking and the business over to his sons John and Herbert Jr., who continue to create quality baked goods at a reasonable price.
