Avenue A reaches sugar saturation as Ralph’s Ices reopens

Avenue A just got a bit more chill.

Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices and Ice Cream reopened two days ago at 145 Avenue A, at Ninth St.

Sporting boardwalk-style signage, the place originally opened in September but temporarily closed in January.

Stephanie Pollazo, the East Village store’s manager, said the most popular sellers are creme ices in either of two flavors: peanut butter cookie dough or graham cracker crunch.

The chain has another location nearby at Second Ave. and 22nd St. in Gramercy.

Avenue A now has three places serving ice cream within just a few blocks — the undisputed original, of course, Ray’s Candy Store, along with Mikey Likes It Ice Cream and now Ralph’s.

But, despite the growing ice cream scene, it seems there’s plenty of business for all since there’s no shortage of people craving a sugar fix.

“Whenever I walk past Mikey’s there’s a line and we have a line,” Pollazo said.
