Jahn's Ice Cream Parlor
If you lived in the Bronx from the early 1950's through the 1970's, then you MUST recall this famous ice cream parlour located on Kingsbridge Road. You may have brought a favorite date here after a movie, and more often then not, you would run into some of your friends enjoying the tremendous variety of ice cream concoctions that they served. The most popular item on the menu that could be shared by a dozen people was the KITCHEN SINK which consisted of no less than 32 scoops of ice cream. Back in the 50's you'd pay about $6.00 for it. Today, the same item costs close to $40! Times have certainly changed since then but your memories of Jahn's will be with you forever.
