Why can't NY understand the croissant?

I guess this is more an expression of bewilderment than a real question, but what is up with all those croissants wrapped in plastic wrap? That's like making someone a steak and serving it up on a bed of ice cubes. Are there any good places to get a real croissant (ie. not a mushy piece of bread wrapped in plastic) other than Patisserie Claude? And please tell your deli, croissants don't belong in plastic wrap!
