Eddie’s Sweet Shop

105-29 Metropolitan Avenue
Seelig & Finkelstein, 1925

This nearly century-old ice cream parlor, serving homemade confections, is considered to be one of the best in the city. Its interior architectural details, including tin ceilings, wood-paneled walls, marble counter and a vintage wooden phone booth give the customer the impression of stepping back in time. The row of two-story brick buildings in which the business is located were designed with shops on the ground floor and residences above. The architects were also responsible for several apartment buildings north of Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills, including the Town House, The John Alden, The Raleigh and The John Adams.
