There's a lot of work going on today at Mikey Likes It. We're closed to renovate and restock everything including a special 'Flavor of the Month' blast from the past. Stop in tomorrow and help us celebrate our 1 year anniversary 👍. Thanks to everyone for your continued support. #MikeyLikesItIceCream #MikeyLikesIt #IceCream #NewYear #1YearAnniversary #BeBackTomorrow #LeadersOfTheNewScoop
The ice cream shop at 199 Avenue A between East 12th Street and East 13th Street was closed yesterday to prepare for today's 1-year anniversary celebration.
Proprietor Michael "Mikey" Cole started the business from his parent's StuyTown apartment, where he grew up.
"We'd be at my house for hours filling up the freezer with ice cream until my mom was like, 'You gotta get that shit out of here.'"
You can read our two-part interview with Cole here and here.
