The Sweetest Attraction In NYC

I love the internet for the surprising randomness of its gifts. The other day by chance I spotted the wonderful video below about a magical candy store on the Lower East Side of Manhattan that I haven’t visited since I was a kid. Economy Candy was opened by Morris Cohen in 1937 . These days the store is now run by his grandson, Mitchell Cohen, a Wharton graduate and former banker.

If you ever find yourself in New York City, be sure to visit one of its traditional candy stores, but for now, check out the short film about this 85 year-old institution.
