I scream, you scream, we all know how it goes. But really, there are few things as satisfying as a perfect ice cream sundae on a hot summer day. Try not to drool while looking through these pictures of the nine best we’ve found in NYC, then come up with a reason to treat your kids (and yourself) to a chilly, sweet, bowl of ice cream with all the fixings.

The delicious artisan and unusual flavors at this popular Brooklyn ice cream shop in Prospect Heights take your sundae to new heights. Create your own or dive into their signature Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Sundae, made from either a warm brownie or butter cake, with three scoops and all the fixings. The cherry on top? It's big enough for the whole family to share.
