Eddie's Sweet Shop in Forest Hills, Queens has been operating for 48 years, serving up old school style sundaes and desserts from original machinery much older than that.

The interior of Eddie's Sweet Shop is a startling throwback to a bygone era, with most of the decor and signage remaining exactly how it was 50 years ago, if not longer. Current owner Vito Citrano (Giuseppe's son) maintained that doing so is a lot of work because "they don't make these things anymore."
