From everything I've read, New York style cheesecakes are supposed to be more dense and less creamy than other types of cheesecake, and therefore are not meant to be baked in a water bath in order to produce their unique texture. Having said that, this is a decent New York style cheesecake. My friends and I generally prefer creamier cheesecakes,though-which are totally different. I make about 20 different cheesecakes and love them all so much that I can't pick a favorite. This is alright, but I've made much better. My oldest daughter loves cheesecakes of all kinds and this is the only one that disappointed her. (If you are happy with this recipe baked in a water bath then go for it! It is your cheesecake after all!)
