Best Reason To Live Midtown

Ice-Cream Trucks

STAFF PICK: We're so lucky to live in a climate where the ice-cream trucks operate even in the middle of winter. It's a pleasure to hear them coming down the street, playing "Turkey in the Straw" or "Popeye the Sailor Man," knowing you can run out and wave them down for a Creamsicle. Each truck is individually customized and decorated. Ice-cream trucks are the ultimate mom-and-pop microenterprise, a vestige of the days when milkmen and produce sellers and even knife sharpeners announced their products and services with distinctive sounds. We've heard of neighborhoods populated by evil Stepford Grown-ups that've banned ice cream trucks. Don't let it happen in your neighborhood! Preserve this vital piece of Americana, at the very least by patronizing them every chance you get.
