New 16 Handles At Broadway & 98th Now Open

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

UPDATE 4:38 pm: Thanks to MUW reader Lindsay for the photo above and the following note:

“Its super crowded, but much nicer than 75th st… so new and the actual machines are much nicer, believe it or not.”

Since the previous post was about cupcakes, I’ll keep the “dessert” theme going — the new 16 Handles at 2600 Broadway (corner of 98th) first mentioned back in November is finally open.

I just spoke to someone at the 325 Amsterdam location who confirmed they opened last night (h/t to @AlanaT99).

Alana mentioned they were giving out free samples last night. When I asked the guy at the Amsterdam location if they were still doing that, he said “we always give out free samples.”

Clearly there was a breakdown in communication.

Regardless, if you live in the northern part of the UWS and were looking for a nearby froyo fix, now you have one.

I believe this brings the total number of Manhattan locations to six, with two more on the way (but not on the UWS).
