Brooklyn Egg Creams

That's theway it was always made where I grew up in Rockaway Beach, Queens. Egg creams are actually a five-borough New York City drink, not just a Brooklyn drink.

I grew up in Rockaway Beach, Queens in the 1960s. If you ordered an egg cream, it was understood that you wanted chocolate. If you wanted vanilla, you ordered a vanilla egg cream. There ere NO strawberry egg creams, they are a newer invention; in fact, they probably came about around the same time that the phrase "the outer boroughs" was invented, the mid-1980s. The phrase "the outer boroughs" phrase was invented by a mid-westerner who thought that the only place to lived was Manhattan; strawberry egg creams probably had the same kind of birth.

OK, as a native New Yorker born in 1955, I object to the phrase "outer boroughs" which was invented in the 1980s by a midwesterner who thought Manhattan was "all that." New York, prior to the 1980s midwesterner, was always "The Five Boroughs." The fact is, most native New Yorkers do not live in Manhattan.

The bagel? What do you mean? Bagels aren't gone. Or, do you mean Bagel Nosh?

Not true. It was not an A cream. What would that mean anyway?

It got the name egg cream because of the froth on top, which looks like an egg that is whisked into a froth.

As a native New Yorker, I can say this about egg creams, never put whipped cream on an egg cream, it is supposed to have a froth on top, and you should be able to taste the seltzer, it should not be too sweet. In fact, it got the name egg cream because of the froth, it looks like an egg that is whisked into a froth.
