Dumbo Ice Cream Truck War

New, 5 comments

Anybody that needs/wants an ice cream or ice on the streets of Dumbo, shouldn't have a problem finding one. "Seen for the first time in Dumbo were at least 5 different ice cream/slush trucks (not pictured is a flavored ice cart on Washington and York Street). So what you say? Not if you consider that they were stationed within a six block radius at once. And that doesn’t include Almondine’s sorbets, Jacques Torres ice cream sandwiches, and the delis with ice cream in the neighborhood." Is it the tourists? Gentrification? David Walentas? Is it a good or bad? [Dumbo NYC]
