You've seen the cartoons, you've heard the jokes: "It's so hot you could fry a pan on the sidewalk!" But it's not until you experience an NYC summer that you actually truly believe that, yes, the streets could serve as a frying pan. And don't even get us started on the subway...

So it's a good time for us to share our favorite NYC ice cream shops, especially since Sunday is National Ice Cream Day. With out-of-the-box flavors you'll crave even through the winter, you'll want to bookmark this list and plan a day to hit them all. Because an ice cream coma is more than worth it. Trust us.
