Urby and the historic Staten Island ice cream parlor Egger’s Ice Cream have just revealed their first collaboration: Green Dream, a one-of-a-kind homemade ice cream flavor available only at Eggers’ pop up location at Staten Island Urby. Made from
ingredients grown at Staten Island Urby’s one-of-a-kind on-site 5,000 square foot urban farm and evolving throughout the season as new crops come to harvest, Green Dream is infused with bold flavors like basil and other micro-greens. Untapped Cities Insiders will have the opportunity to tour Urby’s farm with Olivia Gamber, the Rabbit’s Garden’s current farmer-in-residence, and hear about the unique collaboration, as well as take part in an ice cream social to try the cool, fresh flavor that makes the perfect treat on a hot summer’s day and is made fresh in-house.

Located on the North Shore waterfront, Staten Island Urby is one of the largest new construction developments in Staten Island with 571 apartments and 35,000 square feet of commercial space. Founded in 1932, Egger’s Ice Cream is a Staten Island staple, with a flagship location on Forest Avenue, and a second location in Historic Richmond Town. Egger’s Ice Cream at Staten Island Urby offers the charming, throwback atmosphere of a classic 1930s ice cream parlor with
homemade ice cream, old-fashioned candy, and classic soda fountain beverages.
