Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory - 1 Water Street, (Corner of Old Fulton Street), Brooklyn Heights, New York 11201 

NY Magazine said: “Top-notch ice cream in a spectacular location—a twenties fireboat house on the Brooklyn waterfront.”  The view is just as incredible as the ice cream.

 

M’O Il Gelato - 178 Mulberry Street, (Between Broome & Kenmare streets), New York, NY 10012     

 Organic gelato made by Marco Vighi, a pastry chef who perfects and develops new gelato flavors in his laboratory in Italy and flies back and forth to New York several times a year for quality control and to introduce the new flavors. 

 

Emack and Bolio’s - E 81st Street & First Avenue, New York, NY 10028   

Named after two homeless people that two pro-bono lawyers from Boston were helping while entertaining their rock star friends with ice cream late at night…. Ask at the shop for more details, it’s an awesome story. Good Housekeeping magazine called them “The Best Ice Cream Purveyors in the Country.” 

 

Eddies Sweet Shop - 105-29 Metropolitan Ave #1, (Cross street: 72nd Rd), Forest Hills, NY 11375 

Old school shop that offers homemade everything – ice cream, sundaes, hot fudge, real whipped cream – in retro settings.

 

Pesso’s Italian Ices - 203-20 35th Ave, (Cross street: 204th St), Bayside, NY 11361
