The milkman cometh! The nostalgic middle-of-the-night milk delivery service, complete with glass bottles, has returned to New York. The Daily News tagged along with the two milkmen, Matt Marone and Frank Acosta, who started their business a couple of years ago, and now deliver to around 50 households in Manhattan. They're also expanding to Brownstone Brooklyn next month—where surely the two good looking gents will quickly become a hot topic amongst Park Slope mom gossip circles.
They told the paper, "Our friends ask us, do housewives hit on us?" and mentioned that "People were making an effort to meet us at the door" when the service first started... but they promise there's no hanky panky with customers. So people are really just paying $4.99 a quart for milk? Well, it seems nostalgia is the strong selling point here; Marone says,"People have a connection with the milkman. They want to stop us and tell us about the glass bottles and how they miss that."
