Tucked away on the corner of 15th Avenue and Christina Street, a little ice cream shack with a long history awaits its fresh start.For more than two decades, the building has sat vacant, in recent years covered by sheets of plywood from roof to foundation. But all that has changed thanks to James Purifoy, who set out to revive the ice cream parlor that had been a staple of his childhood. The revival of the eatery will feature more than cold treats. Purifoy plans freshly ground burgers, pasta and potato salads, frozen yogurt, smoothies and 24 flavors of soft serve.
“I had been riding past it so many times and not even noticing the place,” Purifoy said. “or wishing it was what it used to be.”
There is culture that happens right here!
