    Named after a line in a Walt Whitman poem - "I too lived - Brooklyn, of ample hills, was mine..." People talk about the salted crack caramel but my fave is the Ooey Gooey Cake.

    The best ice cream in New York City. Hands down. Salted crack caramel is aptly named. If pistachio squared is available, get it! The Ooey Gooey will bring you to a buttery heaven. Just get it all!

    It's so hard to choose one favorite flavor, so change it up each time you go. Definitely try the chocolate chip cookie cone at some point, though. Perfect stop before or after a walk to Prospect Park.

    The line is always long, but it's well tended and moves quickly. Get The Raw Deal or Chocolate Milk & Cookies if you like chocolate and chunks.

    After spending an hour trying all the famous flavors I decided to go with a underrated flavor which was a balance between salty and sweet, the munchies has mini m&ms and potato chips, it’s amazing!

    The menu is always in flux, but a few choice items are the Beer Muncheez and Cookie Au Lait, which pairs New York’s own Irving Farm espresso with sandwich cookies in a coffee-flavored ice cream. Read more

    Ample Hills is about ice creams that are deliciously creamy!All their flavors are epic;some of my favorites are the ooey gooey butter cake, butter pecan, peanut butter cups and the cookies & cream

    Incredible ice cream. Another one of my favorite ice cream places in the world. The flavors are rich and the scoops are large - ordering a double is often a mistake 😂

    The 30s ice cream with those delicious red velvet cake chunks! oh God yes! 😳😖 it's like the reverse of ice cream cake, cake ice cream? Just know it's good. Great. Amazing.

    Don't miss the Salted Crack Caramel, an intense and just salty enough butter caramel ice cream that gets even better with "crack cookies," buttery chocolate-covered Saltines.

    For a Jaws-inspired treat, try Beneath! This custom batch features beer ice cream made from Magic Hat Circus Boy with "bloody" honeycomb & crunchy nuggets of Ritz crackers, pretzels, and potato chips.

    Awesome ice cream. Really fresh and the best ingredients. However sometimes consistency is a little off but it makes it more fun to eat! Try the pretzel cone YUM!!!

    I'm typically a chocolate guy when it comes to ice cream. The Ooey Gooey Butter Cake (the creamiest vanilla ice cream with hunks of St. Louis-style Ooey Gooey Butter Cake) is STILL one of my faves.

    Best ice cream possibly ever! Salted pretzel cone x Salted Caramel (Crackamel) ice cream is heaven. Don't even need the special cone, really just got it to have tried it once for novelty.

    This is the original location. If you can't decide get the ice cream flight, 6 flavors(each scoop is about the size of an egg). They have some outdoor seating.

    This is, with no exaggeration, the best ice cream place I've ever been and almost certainly the best ice cream place to which I'll ever go. Salted Crack Caramel, Ooey Gooey Buttercake, waffle cone.

    Salted crack is a must, but my low-key favorite is Strawberries & Cream, honestly the best strawberry ice cream anywhere ever.

    Takes you back to childhood with creative mix in for your now adult self (munchies, the dude, white russian, ooey gooey...) what's not to love when they let you taste as many flavors as you want.

    I love an ice cream that is so chock-full of ingredients that you don't need to order any toppings. They always have a great flavor selection and their ice cream is super creamy.

    VONY FB group comment: "Ample Hills always has a couple dairy free options (most of the time they're also vegan, just ask). Get the chocolate gelato if they have it..."

    Gorgeous ice cream & homemade cones. Very friendly staff. Excellent service:when one staff member gave us the wrong flavor, another corrected it with no fuss and gave us an extra scoop to boot.

    There's a reason there's a perpetual line in this ice cream shop. Flavors are all delicious across the board, but the Salted Crack Caramel and Cookie au Lait are worth a mention.

    You seriously can't lose. It's all money. I would roll with peanut butter cup or oatmeal cookie but you do you. Sample everything. Hot fudge is also good if thats your thing like it is mine.

    Amazing selection of artisanal ice creams, unfortunately it's always extremely crowded so be sure to have enough time to actually get some.

    Few scoop shops in this city make ice cream as good—and as fun—as Ample Hills. On your first visit, definitely try some Salted Crack Caramel.

    If you stopped by here, definitely don't leave, grab a scoop, or two, or three, e.t.c., definitely the best Ice Cream spot in the NY Tristate Area. I recommend the Salted Crack Caramel as a first try!

    Ice cream options are endless. Unique & classic flavors. What I've always disliked about this place is they can't find a way to keep the store cold, therefore your ice cream starts melting instantly

    Among the quirky flavors is the aptly named "the munchies," a pretzel-infused ice cream studded with potato chips, pretzels, Ritz crackers, and mini M & M's. Read more

    Some of the BEST ice cream I've ever had. Salty crack on pretzel cone. caramely/salty, not too rich. The pretzel cone is kind of thick however...not necessary for the experience.

    Fun fact: These guys make all of our ice cream from start to finish, pasteurizing the milk, cream, sugar, and eggs together on site, which makes them a registered dairy plant!

    Make sure to check their Facebook page for regular flavor updates. Ooey Gooey butter cake is like eating the creamiest vanilla ice cream littered with pieces of decadent butter cake from St. Louis.

    The original branch - there's a bigger branch on Nevin's St now with a rooftop alfresco bit - but this branch is great too even if small. Order the salted crack caramel.

    This really is the best ice cream in New York. Go for The Munchies or Ooey Gooey Butter Cake. The only thing you'll regret is not getting a bigger size.
