So in a day and a half of walking the streets of New York in the sweltering heat..seeking shelter in an air conditioned dwelling usually consisted of a places full of food..actually for the most part ice cream.
There is just so much of it readily available.. I mean if you are doing all that walking..it’s okay to have ice cream two three times a day right? I mean how else does one cool down?
Let me give you a little run down of these places..just in case you are in NYC and need to seek shelter from the sweltering heat.
First let me be entirely honest..it was not all ice cream…there may have been a trip to Clinton Hill Brooklyn for a specific doughnut shop thrown in the mix… and maybe, just maybe a trip to the East Village for a cookie.
Anyhow. The Rundown.
1. The Van Leeuwen Ice Cream truck:
All I can say is that I had a scoop of Cinnamon and a scoop of Mint Chip..Perfection!
for their twitter and truck locations (they also have three store front locations)
2. Sundaes and Cones:
I actually only tasted EVERYTHING.. but had several bites of Courtney’s Fat free Green Tea..yum!

3. Stogo (Dairy Free Ice Cream)
I had soy based Mexican Chocolate and Peanut Butter Fudge..both amazing. They also have Coconut and Hemp based ice cream.
