This Summer, Treat Yourself to Manhattan’s Finest Gelato
Among the many summertime pleasures New Yorkers indulge in each year, few are more satisfying than stopping by a local gelato spot for a refreshing cup of rich Italian ice cream. From classic flavors like pistachio and hazelnut to modern twists including key lime and coconut, there’s an endless world of tastes to explore. This summer, take a tour of Manhattan’s finest gelato purveyors around the city, all of which are located within a short distance of the many no-fee NYC apartments available from Algin Management.
If there’s one name associated with New York City gelato, it’s Amorino. Founded by a pair of childhood friends in Paris in the early 2000s, Amorino expanded its footprint to Manhattan over a decade ago, and since opening its flagship store here, the chain has grown to include three locations spread across the island. Whether you’re looking for a refreshing scoop of handcrafted gelato on the Upper West Side, bustling Midtown West, or in hip Greenwich Village, Amorino has you covered with a nearby cafe serving high-quality ice cream alongside crepes, macarons, and much more.
Residents of Hilary Gardens in Greenwich Village are spoiled for gelato options, thanks to Figo – il Gelato Italiano, a new shop serving a mix of classic and new flavors sure to keep Villagers coming back for more. Built on the legacy of the classic shop Mo Gelato, Figo prides itself on crafting the finest ice cream with natural ingredients, producing flavors ranging from classics to experimental scoops, which include passion fruit, ricotta cheese and chocolate chips, and dark cherry. The shop also serves a variety of other Italian treats, like handmade cannoli, sumptuous tiramisu, and homemade cheesecake, all washed down with drinks from their beverage menu.
With the rest of the city covered, we haven’t forgotten the Upper East Side, which is home to a variety of luxury Algin Management properties as well as Anita Gelato. Founded by Mama Anita and her son, Anita Gelato brings real Italian excellence to every scoop, along with a wide-ranging menu of other Mediterranean delicacies, including fresh fruit and jams. Residents of classic buildings like The Pearl and The Parkview can spend summer evenings tasting any of the more than 150 ice cream varieties and flavors available from Anita.
