Default I haven't seen an ice cream truck in over 20 years

The hell has happened to this country?? When I was a kid, that ice cream truck was circling through my neighborhood every day. Especially during Summer when kids were out of school. You could hear that jingle from five or six blocks away, and you knew you had to hustle and find those quarters quick. Always brought joy to the neighborhood. Have we driven out these creepy pedo/serial killer ice cream truck drivers out of the neighborhood for these posh and trendy froyo shops?? That's not right!

Go outside. I see 1-2 literally every day when I go to ball at my park.

Oh? I guess they stopped coming to the nicer, wealthier neighborhoods then.

This isn’t hard to understand if you’re not a retard.

20 years ago roughly corresponds with the beginning of the explosion of the internet and a shift away from playing predominantly outdoors to playing predominantly indoors.

There’s no market for them if everyone is inside constantly blazing their brains out on electronics.

Dude they have munchie trucks out here now. Straight pulling up with a snack bar full of nachos, hotdogs, pretzels with cheese dip and shit.

Sorry OP.

FWIW, I still have ice cream trucks in my area.

Oh? What's this fancy neighborhood you live in? let's be real, you live in NYC and you're surrounded by people that hate Trump. So it makes sense that you don't leave the basement

Do you though

Go to parks where there are playgrounds. Easy access.

But to OP's point there are less. Here we compete with gourmet ice cream parlors that attract way more business. This is a big millennial hipster community who'd rather buy at a Rain or Shine boutique parlor than off the side of a truck

I usually order ice cream right to my porch, 3-5 days but worth it.
