The summer of 2013 marks the 98th year that the DiCosmo family has been making ices. And what a year! More on that later.
New Jersey- We are happy to say that the flagship ice shack in Elizabeth is now open for the season. Daily hours are approximately 12-6pm for the month of May, or at least until the temperature on 4th Ave hits the mid 70′s. Don’t even bother trying to get an ice there on a rainy day. If you’ve never been to the little green landmark DiCosmo’s Italian Ice shack at the corner of 4th Avenue and High Street in the Peterstown neighborhood, then you need to put it on your shortlist. If you’ve been coming for years, thank you!
New York- DiCosmo’s Rockaway is planning to reopen at the B. 96 St. shack for Memorial Day weekend. We are celebrating our 5th year in business in Rockaway Beach by rebuilding! Like our neighbors and friends on the peninsula, we sustained major damage on our house and lost most of our equipment at our storefronts. But like Lou Reed said, “what comes is better than what came before.” We look forward to another summer in the shack, sandwiched between friends at Veggie Island and Rockaway Taco.
As for our ice barrels and frozen yogurt at the B.97 boardwalk concession stand, we are waiting on the green light from the landlord.
More info on projects, flavors, and specials coming soon.
