Man starts Kickstarter to save egg sandwiches in NYC

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - A Brooklyn man started a Kickstarter campaign to "save" the popular egg sandwiches made in New York City.

Joseph Checkler, a reporter for the Wall Street Journal, claims that he has grown tired of sub-par egg sandwiches in Midtown Manhattan.

He lists ways that he complains that some shops are ruining the perfect sandwich.  He says the eggs are overcooked, unseasoned and they use unmade-to-order bacon or a reheated frozen sausage patty.

“That's NOT how to do it,” Checkler writes on his campaign. “I know everyone's in a rush, but I've created a few simple rules that I will deliver to every purported egg sandwich purveyor in Midtown Manhattan.”

For the project, he claims that he will deliver instructions to shops from 33rd Street to 55th Street between Park Avenue and 9th Avenue.

Checkler says some shops might not want to listen to his proposal to improve their breakfast sandwiches.

“I understand some of them might already be doing it the right way,” writes Checkler. “But my guidelines will at least make an average egg sandwich much better.”

In order to make the sandwiches better, Checkler says he needs help delivering these guidelines.

“I need $310 for printing and mailing costs, as well as for my time researching every corner of Midtown Manhattan to find out who needs this breakfast-saving leaflet.”

Incredibly, the project has raised $470 as of this writing with 15 days remaining, prompting Checkler to create more goals. If the campaign raises $500, he will expand the west boundaries all the way to the West Side Highway. $610 will make him expand to east boundaries all the way to 1st Avenue.

He says if the project is a success, he will expand to other parts of Manhattan and the remaining four boroughs.
