Bedford-Stuyvesant is no longer a frozen-dessert desert. Noticing the area hadn’t had a proper ice-cream parlor in more than a decade, local entrepreneur Garland Shields decided to found a cone-and-cup shop called Frozen Social just a few steps from the Franklin Avenue C stop. Frozen Social offers organic and all-natural varieties of ice cream, yogurt, gelato, and flavored ice topped with fresh-cut fruit instead of the usual chocolate and caramel. The striking whitewashed parlor is "part of a growing trend of beautiful businesses in Bed-Stuy, says Shields.
