I spent the first 12 years of my life in a middle class neighborhood in Brooklyn. I will never forget egg creams and penny candy or sitting at a soda fountain.

I grew up close to the Queens border in Nassau County and also remember egg creams, penny candy, and sitting at a soda fountain. And strawberry milkshakes with actual strawberries in them. I can still get an egg cream in NYC, and sometimes at a Jewish deli/diner in other cities (e.g., the late great Joan & Ed's deli in Natick MA--replaced by Zaftig's, where I think I got an egg cream when I visited my son during his Christmas break). one of my probs is that I prefer a vanilla egg cream, whereas chocolate is standard.

Speaking of old-timey eats, I'm fixing strawberry-rhubarb sauce over vanilla ice cream for dinner company tonight.
