Shaved Ice Central Park Spanish Harlem

Up in Spanish Harlem you’ll find the shaved ice vendors. It was a pretty nice day and Sing and I walked around the Harlem Meer lake. Just on 110th St (Central Park North) at Lenox at the 2 / 3 subway entrance was a shaved ice vendor. Today she was there with all of her various flavors.
