To celebrate getting my official 1,000,000th page hit here on An Englishman on New Jersey, I thought it would be fun to have another SAFE FYB (Share A Favorite Entry From Your Blog) week.

If you’ve got a golden oldie you’d like to share, post a link to it in the comments for other folks to read. Throughout the week, I’ll cut & paste those links here.

Why not host a SAFE FYB week on your own blog too? If you do, let me know and I’ll share a link to that too.

Belly Up for an Egg Cream
I had one of those Proustian moments when The New York Times ran a story on preservation efforts in the Lower East Side of the city. Happily, they didn’t call it the “East Village,” named when the hippies left and the kids moved in using Dad’s credit card. The story included a photo of Gems Spa at the southwest corner of Second Avenue and St. Mark’s Place in 1969. That might even be me — if you squinted — standing at the window waiting for my egg cream. And, there's more, at http://allotropiclucubrations.blogspot.com/2012/01/belly-up-for-egg-cream.html.

Re: Belly Up for an Egg Cream
Thanks, Jon. Marcel Proust immortalized the past in his recherche du temps perdu. I wrote Cruising the Green of Second Avenue to fictionalize those golden moments in 1969.
