After receiving an ice cream maker for wedding present, most people would decide to take that friend off their top 12. Not Scott and Kim Myles. These two have turned lemons into, well, you knew that joke was coming.

Now here’s the part YOU’ll care about– BAY RIDGE ICE CREAM.

Actually the Myles’ brand 5 Boroughs Ice Cream, claiming “One city, a world of flavors,” definitely has a plethora of them: Rich White Vanilla, Mangodesh, NYPB, Amaretto Amore, Bakla-Wha?!, Cha Cha Chocolate, Landfill, and SoHo. Most can guess which tastes are of which neighborhoods (I’m still cracking up at Astoria’s flavor, where the creators reside) but I never expected to stumble upon our humble neck of the woods with Amaretto. What do you think?

5 Boroughs Ice Cream--Amaretto Amore!!

I don’t wanna!! YOU DO IT…

I knew it was only a matter of time before I figured out why. No cockroaches, no rats…but one of the guys I live with did point out that he’d walked past the waste treatment plant one day, and it happens to be about a block and a half away from where we’re living. The guys were concerned that it might smell, and expressed this to me. All I could do was laugh and tell them, “Wait until the middle of July when it’s been hot and humid and the streets piled with garbage for a day or two. You won’t even be able to notice the smell from the treatment plant because all of NYC will already smell like a giant, rotting fart.”

Speaking of farts and New York City, my younger brother came to visit me last summer and said, “You know why New York City is great?” (My god, I could only imagine…) “This place smells so bad you can fart anywhere you want to in public and nobody knows it’s you.”

Ah, boys.  He still had a really good point. One I think many people take for granted in this town.

Anyway, apparently the smell from the plant itself in the summertime is known to trigger bouts of nausia and general whiny malase, according to the article in the Bay Ridge Courier I came across today. They have plans to put lids with carbon filters on the tops of the open air waste containers  – ala a gigantic kitty litter bin. Nice idea.

In the meantime I imagine I’ll be conducting my own smell test once the weather starts co-operating and I can leave my windows open during the day (whenever that is going to finally happen). You’ll know whether or not the fumes are toxic if my roomates find me dead on the floor.

Not that this has ANYthing to do with Bay Ridge as a whole, I thought y’all [yes that’s the Texas in me coming out] might enjoy the subject matter, as we all have dwellings with showers that develop soap scum.
