What do you guys think are the best ice cream places across the state of New York?

    If your question is expanded into including frozen custard, Abbott's out of Rochester is outstanding, with Anderson's in Buffalo not too far behind. 
     
    Sorry I can't help you with ice cream only.

          Welcome to Roadfood, mimi1019!!  Do you have a preference for hard pack, soft serve or frozen custard?

            Thanks for the suggestions! billyboy: I honestly do not have a preference. I enjoy all types of ice creams, and frozen custards.
            I will be driving through New York and since it is summer and I absolutely love ice cream,  I was thinking it would fun to make an ice cream stop.

              Any place that sells Byrne Dairy Ice Cream!
               
              Of course, the Byrne Dairy Markets are a good place to start. But, many regional and seasonal places sell Byrne Dairy Ice Cream.
               
              Upstate Farms Ice Cream is also very good. But I prefer Byrne Dairy.

                Of places not already mentioned, I'd recommend the Snowman in the Lansingburgh section of Troy, NY.  They make their own ice cream and have been in the same location for over 50 years.  Great neon sign on top of the building, too.  This was the ice cream I grew up on, and when I go back home, I'm delighted to find that nothing has changed.
                 
                I'd also recommend Gannon's in Syracuse.  Again, excellent homemade ice cream with over 30 years of satisfied customers.  The main location in the Valley neighborhood is usually quite crowded, so the Shady Brook location on McDonald Road just off Velasko is often the better bet.
