Cool treat for a hot day: Paletas in New Rochelle

June
24

This was the kind of place to be today during the heat: Paleteria La Flor de Michoacan in New Rochelle. I took photos there for an upcoming story about summer party fare. This place has 70 flavors of popsicles, from guava to coconut to “gazpacho.”

That’s Juana and Gerardo Rodriguez in their big store at 574 North Ave. They plan to sell bread there someday, and tamales too. Gerardo’s entire family seems to be in the paleta business, from his father’s place in Mexico to his siblings’ stores in Mount Vernon and Yonkers.
