Now Is The Time to Enjoy Some Ice Cream – Here’s Where To Get A Cone

June 24, 2020

We’ve been waiting for six long months, but finally, the time has come – it’s warm enough to enjoy a delicious ice cream cone from one of the many ice cream parlors we have near our Octagon apartments!

If you’re ready to indulge in a cone, check out one of these parlors for ice cream you can receive through takeout or delivery. Plus, many of them offer walk-up windows, making getting a cone to-go easier than ever.

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, located at 1625 2nd Ave, New York which is 14 minutes from your Octagon apartment, serves a full menu of vegan and classic ice creams, housemade vegan chocolate chip cookies, sundaes and milkshakes along with coffee.

Van Leeuwen Ice Cream started as a food truck on the streets of NYC in 2008 with a mission to make ice cream that makes you feel happy. What could be happier than that magic combination of milk, cream, eggs and cane sugar (or coconuts, cashews and oats for our vegan friends)?

UES., located at 1707 2nd Ave, New York which is 16 minutes from your Octagon apartment, is a small, pink shop for ice cream scoops also doubling as a dimly lit speakeasy with cocktails.

You’ll know you found this speakeasy/ice cream shop when you see the glowing neon ice cream cone which marks the spot. And you’ll love their delicious, outsourced ice cream from Soco Creamery in Great Barrington, New York, all of which is available through curbside pickup or delivery.
