New York City is made up of five boroughs: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island. Each one has enough attractions—and enough personality—to be a city all its own. Learn more about them with this guide.
Coolhaus founder Natasha Case, a UCLA architecture graduate, takes cues from the built environment when creating her organic ice-cream sandwiches. She calls her discipline "farchitecture"—a combination of food and architecture (nothing smellier, immature readers). There could be no better place for such a discipline than NYC, home to the world's most recognizable skyline. The Coolhaus truck is frequently set up underneath The High Line, which has inspired the "High Lime" flavor: lime ice cream between graham-cracker cookies. Other inventive varieties include the "violent" Lambrusco flavor, which was created for the movie 2012, but stuck because customers liked it so much. And, as any responsible gonzo dessert creator is wont to do these days, Coolhaus has also created a foie gras flavor. In a super-green touch, you can even eat the wrappers here. Are they any good? Case diplomatically notes that the packaging is "not about the taste." It's all-natural, though, and does reduce waste.
