I love gelato, and consume a lot of it (too much sometimes). And without a doubt, Fresco is the best gelato you will find in NYC. Each flavor is made fresh every day with fresh and healthy ingredients.

Whilst the gelato is good, we enjoyed this gem of a coffee shop as a breakfast venue. Quite and with seating. Try the avocado bagel with parmesan and sliced boiled egg-it's a winner. Healthy eating options.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
