Best place to watch the Mr. Softee trucks come home (2008)

PARKING LOT AT CARROLL AND NEVINS STREETS

They travel in lines, like elephants, heading here after a day dispensing New York's favorite soft serve. In the afternoon, the narrow PARKING LOT AT CARROLL AND NEVINS STREETS in Brooklyn looks like any other. But by 11, it's all bow-tied-ice-cream-headed-guy-emblazoned trucks: I dream of switching on that tinkling signature tune in every one, at four-beat intervals, and dancing in a swirl.
