nyc ice cream strictly speaking

alright, I've been to a few places around town, been here in the digs for awhile, lived in various boroughs. but since last summer when I visited SF and checked out Humphrey Slocombe/Bi-Rite and Smitten for the first time, I have not been satisfied by anything back here in the n.y.c. I won't mention spots that have been tried because if you guys highly recommend it, i will give it another try. so what's the word on your fave ice cream spot here? (Humphrey is my A-list)
p.s., i don't care if it's still cold in April.

Huh? This makes no sense. Now I'm not sure what to recommend as I don't know what you have tried already.
It's more helpful if you can post:
- where you have already tried
- what you tried there
- what you did / didn't like about it
it's outer-borough, but I had a transplendent espresso cookies and cream at Ample Hills Creamery in Prospect Heights the other day.
Il Laboratorio del Gelato. Smooth,creamy, clean flavors -and lots of choices. On Houston Street
My second choice is on Bleeker Street next to John's Pizza - I always blank as to whether it's called Scoops or Cones, but it has ice cream made in the Argentine fashion,with flavors like dulce de leche .
No disagreeing here that it's soft serve (so is Milk Bar for that matter) but I consider soft serve ice cream, which is not the same as frozen yogurt.
And the fact it's made from goat's milk is neither here nor there (just ask Laloo).
I draw the line at gelato, however. That's not ice cream.
