If you're from New York you know what I mean, the type of egg cream made with Fox's U-Bet syrup. One deep sip and you're in a blissful heaven.
The last time I was in New York I had trouble finding a decent one in my old neighborhood in the Bronx (the new owners of candy stores rip out the soda fountain and replace it with refrigerated coolers, more economical, I'm sure).
A few years ago I used to go to a great place in Sherman Oaks called Manhattan Franks, which had Sabrett hot dogs and authentic egg creams, but I believe it's closed now. There also used to be a place called New York George near the Scientology building, but again, gone.
