Egger’s Ice Cream Parlor: Staten Island’s Prized Possession

You can never go wrong with a nostalgic scoop from Egger’s Ice Cream Parlor

A staple in Staten Island history, Eggers Ice Cream Parlor first opened 1932 with its first location at Castleton Avenue and Broadway. Originally owned by Mr. Richie Egger, the parlor moved to Forest Avenue and Barrett Street in 1950 until he sold the business to Mr. Selle. From there, Mr. Selle moved further up Forest Avenue to its current location at 1194 Forest Avenue.

The parlor quickly grew now having a total of 3 locations on Staten Island, the most recent opening in Urby this past year and Historic Richmond Town in 2018. Although the location at Historic Richmond Town is closed for the season, the parlors legendary flavors will still be available at their other two locations in West Brighton and Stapleton.

Serving more than just ice cream, Egger’s at Historic Richmond Town opened a candy shoppe offering all that your sweet tooth craves. Or even relax and wine down with a cup of coffee while the children craze over the surplus amount of candy. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity before it closes for the season on October 27th!

These beautiful videos were filmed by the Nucleus Pictures, founded in 2018 on Staten Island, a production company specializing in evocative multimedia content for corporations and small businesses. Nucleus partnered with Egger’s this past summer to create material showcasing their products and locations across the island.
