    The strawberry ice cream is the best. Take your cone down to the dock. Stop by Grimaldi's first.

    Chocolate and Pecan Flavors are the best! Do not take Peach&butter.

    Tired from a day of walking all over NYC? Get some of the best ice cream the city has to offer and chillax with your crew for a bit before walking again! Strawberry with waffle cone, can't go wrong.

    Strawberry milkshake was OK. Located on the Brooklyn waterfront: come here for the stunning view on Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan.

    If you cant decide between the butter pecan or the vanilla chocolate chunk... Ask nicely and they'll gladly offer you a half/half option on the one scoop! Then enjoy your ice cream with a view.

    If there's a line, look for their stand right out front! Everyone always misses it, and there's never a line there. Also, chocolate chocolate chunk is awesome.

    Les meilleures glaces de New York! Les parts sont très copieuses mais délicieuses. Dégustez votre glace avec Manhattan en face de vous.
