Lexington Candy Shop

Diner in Upper East Side

Founded in 1925, this picture-perfect diner is a bygone slice of NYC. Sadly it's more a tourist attraction than neighbourhood favorite these days. Slip into a booth or sit at the long counter for reliable standards like burgers, tuna melts and milkshakes – plus egg creams (soda, milk and flavored syrup) made fresh from the old-fashioned soda fountain.
