|Mr. Softee -- A Bird's Eye View|
|Gus Elefantis - Your local Mr. Softee!|
So much free ice cream! Michael Stahl wrote a tasty piece on his Mr. Softee in Astoria for the Ode to Summer week at Narrative.ly.
Gus Elefantis has been working the same route for 27 years! That's a lot of sprinkles.
Read The Inside Scoop on Narrative.ly.
Also make sure you also check out The Reveal, a behind-the-scenes essay where Michael wrote a touching "Ode to Upper Ditmars." This is a must-read for anyone from Astoria or any outer borough!
Below are some extra photos from the day. Thanks for the ice cream, Gus!
