Let the Ice Cream Radar Find Your Next Summer Treat

PUMPKIN blue marble pumpkin ice cream

Wipe the sweat off your forehead and go online, because the geniuses at WNYC’s data-news team just developed New York City’s very own “Ice Cream Radar,” which is exactly what it sounds like. 

Plus, it just so happens to be the easiest thing in the world to use. Just type in your address and voilá: You’ll find the streets of this town are full of ice cream.

From WNYC:

With a click of that button, we’ll detect your location, scan the vicinity and find your nearest scoop. (Sorry, our data is for New York City only.)

New Yorkers without a smartphone (we know you’re out there) can text 9292-COOL-ME with your NYC address or location to get a reply with the nearest cold treat.

You’ll inevitably find that your neighborhood is alive with the smell of banana-splits and monstrous double-scoop cones. If you live in anywhere in New York City, all of these parlors are at your disposal:

This is a great opportunity to explore all the damn ice cream your heart desires, and since all locations on the map are name-tagged, it’s likely you’ll discover some you never knew existed.
