Fleeting Signs of Summer: People’s Pops at the High Line


Making shaved ices in a fedora at the High Line People’s Pops pop-up

While the People’s Pops kiosk is located in the dark bowels of Chelsea Market, you can get the same products while strolling the High Line instead, near the 14th Street stairway. Most popular are not the original fruit-and-herb flavored faux-frozefruits, but the shaved ice, imitating a style of frozen confection that’s been around the city more than a century. Fork in the Road has only one question: Where the hell do you get those big blocks of ice anymore?

Rhubarb-ginger is our favorite.
