One reason I love NYC is that at 10p on a Sunday night it was no problem finding a place like 16 Handles for fro-yo. The flavor options were great, including nutella and choco-coco (chocolate and coconut). Lots of toppings to choose from and a decent amount of seating.

The frozen yogurt is good, not anything special really, but was fun time for my 4 year old and us. It was pretty busy though and the machines needed to be cleaned up. They have a variety of flavors, we tried around 6-7 and they were good. Lots of toppings, but the cake pieces were stale. You pay by the... More

very tasty yogurt in 16 different and delicious tastes. Self service- you create your own mixture of ice cream and toppings. Pay by weight of your cup. A very nice staff member enabled us to taste the different flavors before making our choice,

After a nice dinner out, we stopped here for a small treat. At 8:30 PM, it was busy but plenty of room to both taste the offerings and plan what to top it all off with! Staff was customer focused and friendly- immediately gave us tasting cups to try different flavors. I found myself wanting a taste of the unique... More

We liked this place because unlike some of the new FroYo shops, this one is not so overwhelming. There were sufficient flavors available and plenty of good toppings. I'm not a big FroYo person, so I like a little dollop of the different flavors that look appealing, of course with fun toppings. My boyfriend is more into getting a big... More

Stopped by for a quick afternoon snack with a friend and was no disappointed by the selection of flavours! I eat frozen yogurt fairly frequently but 16 handles was one of my favorites. Highly recommend salted caramel!

Usually I tend to opt for Pinkberry when looking for frozen yoghurt. However we happened upon 16 Handles as it was right behind our hotel - I had never heard of it before. The self-service is so much better than being served, it makes the whole process easier. They also had some really interesting flavours in comparison to other frozen... More

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
