Lark Street Ben & Jerry's re-opening at new spot

467 Madison Ave exterior

467 Madison Ave is the storefront on the left.

The Ben & Jerry's shop that had been on Lark Street in Albany for many years will re-open at a nearby storefront on Madison Ave, according to a post on the shop's FB page: "We are very excited about our new location and look forward to scooping for you in Spring!" In a comment, the shop says it's hoping to work out something for the annual free cone day, which is mid April.

The storefront is at 467 Madison Ave -- it's the space formerly occupied by the Little Moon gift shop, and it's nextdoor to El Loco.

Owner Richard Wilson stopped operating at the shop's longtime spot on Lark Street earlier this year because of a repair problem and reported dispute between the building landlord and an adjacent property owner. [TU]

Around that same time Wilson talked with AOA for that big collection of perspectives on the state of Lark Street and its future. He remarked that Lark appeared to be in a down period, but he also had some optimism: "It's our little Greenwich Village in Albany -- it would be great to get it back to that."

Yaaaaay! I'm glad they found a new space so quickly. I'm sure they'll do great in that location!

I miss Little Moon quite badly. On the other hand, having Ben & Jerry's less than half a block away is quite lovely!

JOY!

El Loco is happier than anyone.

Where did Little Moon go?

Ottos, from what I've read, the owners of Little Moon have closed the shop and moved to India.

According to this article the family has moved to India for a year: http://www.timesunion.com/tuplus-features/article/Albany-family-makes-move-to-India-6775341.php#photo-9285587
