Cinnamax

Wandering down 5th Avenue in New York City, happened upon Madison Square Eats, a pop-up market featuring a variety of NYC’s culinary best. Walking south through the market, you end at a small Melt cart.

First opened in 2010, Melt has locations on Orchard Street, Chelsea Market, and the High Line. Melt is known for their array of impressive ice cream sandwiches.

After the arduous process of selecting just one, decided on one call the Cinnamax.

The Cinnamax is comprised of a generous serving of cinnamon ice cream between two snickerdoodles. The combination is nothing short of magical. The cookie is soft, but sturdy, and taking that first bite, it’s clearly not the plain old ice cream sandwich everybody is used to growing up.

The rich cinnamon sugar of the cookie is just enhanced by the tasty ice cream, an unforgettable experience – truly. And the Cinnamax is just one of several flavors they have to offer.

Melt offers a classic ice cream sandwich, but how can one decide when flavors like Cinnamax, Lovelet (Red Velvet Meltcakes with Cream Cheese Ice Cream) and Morticia (Chocolate Cookies with Malted Chocolate Rum Ice Cream) are all on display.

Border Crossing

New York City, as dense and crowded as it can be, is also very much divided in many ways. The various neighborhoods and neighborhoods-within-neighborhoods all have their own personality.

5th Avenue, when it meets 14th Street, marks the dividing line between East and West. The street, itself, changes from West 14th Street to East 14th Street. A few blocks further, 5th Avenue meets it terminus at Washington Square Park.

This part of 5th Avenue also falls squarely between Chelsea and Greenwich Village.

The last few blocks of 5th Avenue heading south.
