Passion fruit snow cone at Handsome Dan's
Staten Island

Overheated Williamsburgers can cool down with an artisanal snow cone at this old-timey sweets shop. Owner Daniel Levin gained fans dishing out the cold treats at Blackbird Parlour, before expanding his offerings to more than 100 candies (gummy worms, Mallo Cups, Warheads), hand-dipped chocolates and soda fountain drinks (egg creams, sarsaparilla) at this brick-and-mortar spot. The petite space exudes '50s nostalgia with a candy-cane-striped pole, fire-engine red ceiling and shelves filled with knickknacks like mini airplanes.
