Yesterday, Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices (144 East 24th St) opened up again for the season, just in time to catch the 70+ degree early Spring weather. Ralph’s serves up dozens of flavors of Italian Ice (See menu) as well as soft serve ice cream with toppings (See ice cream menu) and is super popular with Baruch students and neighborhood locals. They even have sugar-free flavors. Yelpers (36 reviews) give it an average of 4.5 stars!

From their FaceBook page, “Ralph Silverstro started making and selling lemon ice from his truck in 1928. After 12 years of vending the streets with his ices, he decided to open a store in Port Richmond, so people from all over Staten Island could come and enjoy his delicious Ices.” The Ralph’s Ices in our neighborhood is the first one in Manhattan.
