New Yorkers Wait Hours For Cronuts

In case you haven't been following along, the cronut has displaced the macaroon and the cupcake as the hot foodie item that hipsters will stand hours in line for. Eater reports on today's hubbub:
Cronut Mania is definitely not over: Above is a photo from the epic line in Madison Square Park, where people lined up as early as 4 a.m. to get the one-day-only Cronut Concrete from Shake Shack. As of 9:02 a.m. the line was out into the street. The novelty treat — a Butter Caramel frozen custard blended with Cinnamon Sugar Cronut Holes and served with a Cronut Hole on top — will be served starting at 10 a.m., and only 1,000 are available.
And this is what you get for all that waiting.
