    In recent weeks, a Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck has been sitting on Union Square West, near 14th Street, & a bit south, on University Place. It is one of just two trucks VL has out now, says a staffer.

    While muffin flavors change often at Van Leeuwen, we've been quite happy with the carrot currant muffins (with chewy, caramelized edges) and the sweet, cider-spicy apple vanilla. Read more
