The Gentrification of the Egg Cream

New, 6 comments

2011_08_eggcream1.jpgIt's doubtful anyone's ever offered such an embittered comment on the question of non-traditional egg creams. Here's nostalgia blogger Jeremiah Moss: "It’s not unlike the movement of the wealthy into poor and working class neighborhoods. The new egg cream becomes 'artisanal' and 'exclusive,' just like the new real estate across the Lower East Side. So you could call this the gentrification of the egg cream. It’s a hostile takeover."
