Some sundaes elicit pure nostalgia with Reddi-wip and Hershey's syrup, while more elaborate ones include rich fudge sauce and massive brownies. Frankly, we love them all, and there's no better way to end an epic meal than with a towering mountain of ice cream capped with sweet sauces, whipped cream, and a shower of sprinkles. Here are 7 of our favorite sundaes in NYC (and one now in Long Island that used to grace Queens with its frozen love) that we always turn to when that very particular craving hits. Click through the slideshow to browse them all, or jump to a specific sundae in the list below.
