Legendary Kingston Ice Cream Stand Sold to New Owners
A Kingston landmark ice cream stand for over 65 years has new ownership.
Kingston, New York is known for various things, its full of historic buildings and events, it was the first official capital of New York State, and it's the only city in Ulster County. Putting all of its histories aside, Kingston is also known for something that we all love in the summer, ice cream, and one of the popular places to bring the family for ice cream on a hot summer day or night has changed ownership.
The Original Mickey's Igloo, located at 416 E Chester St, Kingston has been the destination of ice cream lovers in Ulster County for over 65 years. The Bigando Family have been a part of Mickey's for many years but according to their Facebook page, it appears that the time has come for the family to "pass the cone" to new owners. The post said, "With mixed emotions, The Bigando Family announces that we will be closing on the sale of The Original Mickey’s Igloo on Friday, May 19, 2023."
