About the Book

In its heydey, Grossinger’s Bakery was the one stop shop for Upper West Siders seeking baked goods and traditional European treats. Breaking Eggs tells the story of Hungarian-Jewish immigrants during the depression in NYC and the business that grew into a legendary bakery. To this day, customers and grandchildren of those original customers still pine for the famous Praline ice cream cake created by the author’s father. This book takes you on a journey from recent immigrant to the final days of the bakery’s physical presence on the ever-changing Upper West Side. Step Inside to laugh and learn about running a business in a different time and to hear first person accounts of a bygone era.
