Which egg came first, the cream or roll?
The Museum at Eldridge Street’s Egg Rolls and Egg Creams Festival Sunday afternoon used food and the arts to trace the story of the Lower East Side from past to present. The free block party featured both ethnic delicacies — the egg creams ran out first — and also included Klezmer music, Chinese opera, yarmulke decorating and Yiddish and Chinese lessons. The warm weather drew a large crowd to the block in front of the restored 1887 Eldridge Street Synagogue.
