Quietly, New York may be becoming the greatest ice cream city in the world. We're in on the secret, because we follow the profiles of Instagram's biggest celebrities kind of obsessively. (We'll let you in on a little intel: Kim and Bey have got nothing on a scoop from Van Leeuwen or Blue Marble!)
Ahead, we've rounded up the very most delicious, most Instagram-worthy frozen treats in all of NYC. Take note: These are the VIPs — very important paletas, that is — the chicest scoops, and the most tremendously trendy toppings. There are city staples like Big Gay swirls, new kids on the block like the ever-eccentric OddFellows, and statement-makers like cheese-flavored ice cream from Dominique Ansel. Dear Instagram: How sweet it is, to be loved by you.
