    There was a Hildenbrants Ice Cream Parlor in Williston Park on Hillside Avenue. All of their ice cream was made in house. I did not care for their chocolate ice cream. It was too bitter for me. As I recall, the other flavors were good though.

    Anyone remember the name of an ice cream parlor on Hempstead Turnpike in Elmont on the corner opposite a corner candy store? I think it had a one word name. This was in the 60s and 70s. At one time, a dead body was found behind the store.

      Of course, after I posted my comment, I remember the name: Milk Maid! I recall that is was expensive, but my sisters and I could go once in a while for very special treat back in the 60s-70s.

    There was an glorious ice cream parlor in New Rochelle, NY at 615 Main Street. I only went there once — circa 1968 when I was very young. I don’t believe it was actually a Jahns, but it was in the Jahns / Serendipity style broadly speaking — ice cream as fantasy. The exterior of the facade was very ornate and fanciful; some small remnant of that remains (but without the kaleidoscopic colors).

  16. There was an old fashioned ice cream parlor either in Commack or Smithtown in the late 1970s. I used to work there but for the life of me, can’t remember the name. Any help out there? It was set up to look old fashioned.

    I do remember Witts on Metropolitan ave, and Winters on Woodhaven blvd, but the place we really hung out at was Wilkins on Jamaica Avenue just west of Woodhaven boulevard . They served Ice cream that Emil Wilkins made himself, great hamburgers and other sandwiches. French Fries and even home fries made by the individual pan full and fried in lard. They even had a juke box. But if you misbehaved, Grandma Wilkins might slao you in the face with the wet counter rag. My brothers Bob and Kevin worked there in the mid late 60’s We used to go there sometimes on Sunday evenings after Chellis Hall dances on Sunday afternoons
