    Chocolate Egg Cream: $2.50

    Egg creams are now $3 for a 16 oz cup of chocolate, vanilla, or coffee syrup, whole milk, and seltzer whipped up into a froth. Perfect.

    Obscured by stalls selling hats, piercings, and all the things you don't really need, pop in to Gem Spa for the chocolate egg cream; no egg, just a drink of frothy seltzer, milk, and chocolate syrup.

    The sunglass vendor loves to haggle--don't offend him by not bargaining.

    The humble egg cream ($2.50), a mixture of chocolate syrup (the purists demand Fox’s U-Bet), milk and soda water, lives on at Gem Spa, a ramshackle bodega on the corner of St. Marks and 2nd Ave. Read more

    Stop here for a New York classic--Egg Creams! No, there are no eggs involved. Where do you think they got there name?

    It really is the best egg cream. It's weird that the best egg cream is there, otherwise a typical magazine stand...it's almost like Boogie Nights: an otherwise ordinary...
