Time Out Says

Happy birthday, Eddie’s! This Forest Hills institution will turn 95 in 2020, which makes it the oldest operating ice cream shop in NYC—even the fridge could get a senior discount on a MetroCard. The soda fountain was already a classic when current owner Vito Citrano took it over in 1968, and he keeps the old traditions alive: All the ice cream is made inhouse. Even the hot fudge and caramel sauce are made by hand! If it was up to us, every New Yorker would be required to go to Eddie’s at least once.
