Gem Spa on 2nd Avenue at the corner of St. Mark's Place has been in business since the 1940s and is featured in our latest YouTube video: EAST VILLAGE STREET FOOD & PUNK.

Full video:

 Gem Spa is famous for its egg creams, a quintessential New York beverage originally served in candy stores throughout the Lower East Side beginning in the 1920s. The egg cream does not contain eggs or cream but is a mixture of very cold milk, seltzer, and flavored syrup. Because most of the original soda fountain locations have closed, true egg creams are rapidly disappearing. To this day, Gem Spa @besteggcream continues to make their egg creams using the same recipe and original soda fountain machine from the 1940s.
