Have you been to this 16 Handles place on Amsterdam Avenue between 75th and 76th Street? It always seems to be packed. I think it’s because they let people control their own froyo. The store lets you personally pump frozen yogurt into a cup or cone, mixing and matching the 16 flavors, swirling it or plopping it in whichever way you desire, and then add toppings.
Sadly, some kids will stick their hands onto the dripping yogurt nozzle and then lick it off their fingers (c’mon kids, that’s gross!)
Now the frozen yogurt emporium is expanding North in the neighborhood.
By January, 16 handles expects to open a new store at 2600 Broadway between 98th and 99th Streets, Jessica, a general manager at the Amsterdam Avenue store told me. That spot used to house a Starbucks.
