After several hours or minutes on the beach, you’ll inevitably want ice cream. That’s why Ample Hills exists. They make some of the best ice cream in NYC, and there’s a location in Bay 9 of the Riis Park Beach Bazaar. Get several scoops on a pretzel cone, and enjoy the fact that if you don’t eat them immediately, they’ll melt all over your hands.
