Whatever happened to home made knishes?
Most of the great knisheries are long gone. I am looking for one in Brooklyn. Know of any?
Fuhgeddaboutit. Drive to Knish Nosh in Forest Hills or take the M or R train to 67th Avenue station...but ONLY order something which is guaranteed fresh (and is usually sitting on the racks near the main oven)...sadly, they no longer have the famous liver knish, but if enough folks ask, hey, ya never know.

Agree with the mixed reviews and therein lies my caveat...freshness is only guaranteed "off the rack", and flavor can vary wildly. The unique buttery, peppery potato hasn't been detected in many moons.
Back to Brooklyn...While the old Brighton Beach Mrs. Stahl's was an "institution", my personal fave was (a prize for anyone who can remember this one!) Hershie's KnishShop under the West End Line in Borough Park (50th Street station, if I recall)...it's been gone since the '60s.
I recommend the ROUND potato knishes and kasha knishes at Jay & Lloyd's on Avenue U in Brooklyn
