All it takes is a few finger-taps these days to get pretty much anything you could ever want delivered to a New York doorstep.

Chipotle, McDonald's and now local grocery stores are delivering in Manhattan.

Amazon Prime announced today that it will begin offering one-hour delivery service from local stores including DaAgostino, Gourmet Garage and Billyas Bakery. Yes, you can get cupcakes straight to your fifth-floor walkup in almost as much time as it would take you to leave!

With the free Prime Now app, customers in 11 eligible zipcodes can pay a $7.99 service fee to have all their edible necessities dropped off.

And if Billy's Bakery banana pudding still has you wanting more, soon Amazon will expand to Eataly and Westside Market, giving you all the mozzerella you could possibly dream of.

While New Yorkers have been ordering groceries from FreshDirect for years, this new Amazon option allows customers to pick and choose what they already know and like from their local store's shelves.

Get ready to be unprecedentedly lazy New York, the era of everything delivered has arrived.
