Gritty. Cheap. Cramped. A bit worn and grimy. Love.
Ray’s Candy Store is just perfect and a true representation of what old school NYC used to be. The kind of place that is a must to hit up when in a happy drunk vibe late at night, and need some sort of fatty, sweet, greasy, or messy snack to help soak up all the booze you consumed.
Ray’s has been open since 1974. Walking up from outside the facade is not the most appealing, and easy to miss. It’s a different world once you enter inside. The space itself is small, and the walls are plastered with newspaper clipping, photos, signs, pictures, and posters listing the hodge podge of foods they offer. Soft serve ice cream, Belgian fries, egg creams, chili dogs, cheese fries, shakes, fried Twinkies, sausages, and even beignets! There is so much here to make your inner fatty happy!

The pastry dominatrix had me in her clutches. The gluttonous Adonis in me approves!
Dominique Ansel Kitchen in NYC has become famous for its mouth watering pastries, and with worthy acclaim. As for the actual facility it’s kind of small, with one community table to sit at, and a funky stair case pyramid with stadium-like seating that rise to the ceiling. Kind of a cool spot to drop in on and enjoy a tasty pastry, cup of cappuccino, or some nice hot soup and a croissant on a cold wintry NYC day.

With the oppressive heat and humidity that has hit the city since Summer started just less than a week ago one of the best treats to cool off with is ice cream. Well, here is a perfect chance to chill out for free courtesy of Good Humor!
Come and enjoy a delicious ice cream bar with former New York Mets relief pitcher, John Franco, at the Good Humor Ice Cream Truck on Thursday, June 27 at Bryant Park. As the first stop of Good Humor’s “Share the Love” campaign this summer, John will hand out free classic and new Good Humor ice cream bars to hundreds of New Yorkers. People will also receive the opportunity to win fun prizes through games and activities. The event will be about from 11 AM – 1 PM.
NYC residents can also capture meaningful moments of joy at the animated gif photo booth available at the truck. They can send the gifs directly to their social media channels from the booth, sharing the experience with their friends and family. The Good Humor Ice Cream Truck will continue to surprise and delight The Big Apple with free frozen treats throughout the summer.
