Another dairy-free dessert option is gone in the neighborhood. Yesterday, Bill the Libertarian Anarchist came across owner Blythe Anne Boyd cleaning out Blythe Anne's, her vegan ice cream shop on East Sixth Street between Avenue A and Avenue B.
Boyd and her husband Derek Hackett, who opened Lula’s Sweet Apothecary together in 2008, were reportedly involved in an ugly divorce several years ago. The shop was closed for several months for a "reorganization" in 2013... Boyd eventually rebranded the space in 2014.
Blythe Anne's ice cream was also available for sale at Sustainable NYC, which closed for good back in August on Avenue A.
