    I haven't seen a Slush Puppy machine in ages. It did exist in NYC back in the late 80s, early 90s for sure. Not sure if it's still around.

        The only Slush Puppies I used to have were at Dresen's in East Hampton in the 80s. Large round ice crystals, right? Some of the Clearview Cinemas in Manhattan have Icees. Though, might I suggest you check out Quickly on Grand, just east of Bowery? It's an Asian slush drink chain which is quite good. Nothing like the texture of a SP, but lots of flavors, very tasty.

          I used to get them all the time at nothing-special deli in Astoria on 31st Ave and 34 th St. I was in there last week and they still have the machine.

            I am almost sure that I have seen Slush Puppies on offer at the Last Stop grocery on the NW corner of Isham and Broadway. Take the A to 207th (last stop) and exit by the front of the train.

              I know of a couple of places in Queens that have the REAL Slush Puppy. The snack shack by the tennis courts at Alley Pond Park has them (located on Winchester Blvd & Union Turnpike) -- just saw the sign last week. There are also some bodegas/grocery stores that have Slush Puppies -- there is one in Richmond Hill, Queens at the corner of Myrtle Ave & Park Lane South across from Forest Park. Gotta love the stuff!
