Davey's ultra babka ice cream

Ice cream may have centuries-old roots, but technology and globalization are helping scoop shops push the frozen treat's boundaries with ambitious flavors and toppings. And while it's true that the city's old guard delis, diners, and malt shops are slowly fading away, you can still find a few surviving in neighborhoods that have resisted gentrification. Whether you're looking for wacky combinations, baller banana splits and sundaes, or just a scoop of plain vanilla, it's a great time to not be lactose intolerant in New York. The city that never sleeps has quickly become the city that can't stop, won't stop shoveling icy desserts into its mouth. Let's all follow suit.

The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

10. The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory (1 Water Street, Brooklyn; 718-246-3963)
Housed in a landmark building on the Fulton Ferry Landing pier, Mark Thompson's modest creamery impresses with both its pointed, straightforward eggless ice creams and atmospheric views of the East River under the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge. The menu maxes out at eight flavors, the wildest of which is peaches and cream. Vanilla chocolate chunk is a personal favorite with its dark, irregular chips. Its location makes it a must before or after downing pies at Grimaldi's or its kindred frenemy pizzeria Juliana's.

9. Eggers Ice Cream Parlor (2716 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island; 718-980-6339)
Old-fashioned outfits hardly come quainter than this busy Staten Island ice cream parlor with green vinyl seating, freshly whipped cream, and recipes that haven't changed in 75 years. We love the dense vanilla peanut butter swirl and cookies and cream, which realize their potential in banana splits assaulted with hot fudge. The ice creams are so heavy they make milkshakes that are nearly golden arch thick -- ask for yours with an extra scoop balanced on the rim of the glass like a lady wearing the tastiest derby hat imaginable.

8. Cones (272 Bleecker Street, 212-414-1795)
The handmade Argentine-style ice cream served from this barebones West Village shop has a pronounced buoyancy that's similar to its Italian relative gelato. There are some true gems among the nearly 25 different flavors, including dulce de leche and yerba maté, plus stunt flavors like sweet potato with brie cheese and one that mixes Johnny Walker Black whiskey with kumquats. And although it's no longer all that rare among the city's finer ice cream operations, Cones' best offering may be its sweet corn ice cream, chock full of kernels and dusted with cinnamon at the shop's behest.
