Guss' Pickles was founded by a Polish immigrant, Isidor Guss. Guss arrived in New York in 1910, and like hundreds of thousands of other Jewish immigrants, settled in the Lower East Side. Clustered in the "pickle district" of Essex and Ludlow streets, early 20th century pickle vendors gave birth to what would be known as "New York style" pickles.

Guss' Pickles withstood the economic difficulty and now remains as the last store from the days of the Essex Street empire. The only 3 living people who know the original Guss' secret recipe are Andrew Leibowitz, Stephen Leibowitz, and Harry Baker.
