Egg Cream

I was wondering if one can still get a good old fashioned egg cream in NYC. Can anyone tell me a place to find one?

        You might want to do a "search" on chowhound 'cause this has been recently discussed. I make my own at home.

      2. i think the famous spot is gem spa b/c they make it the traditional way with a long spoon and whipping it up and down.
        its good but didnt shake my heart
        here's a thread

        1. Russ and Daughters is making a spectacular egg cream these days. the killer smoked fish and jewish appetizer scene doesn't hurt either... enjoy fb
