Ralph's Ices

[As part of MadParkNews March Madness, there will be 11 winners announced on Monday (April 2nd) of some awesome items from around the neighborhood. (Be SURE you are on the free weekly MadParkNews e-newsletter list by Monday morning at 9am to be eligible).]

Another item to be given away is a Punch card for 10 small ices (value $30) from Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices (144 East 24th St). 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.

No purchase necessary – to enter just be sure you are on the mailing list for the free weekly MadParkNews e-newsletter, because that is where we will randomly draw the winners. (1 entry per person, but your friends are welcome to enter.) Must be 21+ for some items. All winners will be announced Monday, April 2nd, 2012. See all of the prizes and terms at
