The Brooklyn Historical Society Library will re-open in 2005. The Brooklyn Public Library will perhaps continue its digitization of the Brooklyn Eagle.
Until then, we know very little about "mush."
How many of you remember the "mush"? For a nickel one could by a frank with mustard and sauerkraut; however for those of us who didn't have that much money there existed a two cents deal. It consisted of the hot dog roll, mustard and sauerkraut. I still love to see if any of the people who sell hot dogs know what a mush is because I am a vegetarian. Sometimes I can still buy this for as little a quarter.
Mush (pronounced MOOSH): A sandwich made on a hot dog roll with sauerkraut but without the frank.
