Open Thread: What's the Best Ice Cream in NYC?


Can you name all these ice creams? [Photographs: Robyn Lee and Max Falkowitz]

Ice cream season is here, and there's never been a better time to be a frozen dessert lover in New York. Last year we dedicated all of July to ice cream, eating more than our fair share along the way. Now we're gearing up for another summer and taking stock of some newcomers, and we want to hear from you: what's the cream of the NYC ice cream crop?

How about some ground rules. New York takes gelato just as seriously as American ice cream. Then there's soft serve. And frozen yogurt. Ice cream sandwiches. Italian ices. How much can you compare them against each other? And what does New York do best?

Those are our takes. How about yours?
